The Illinois Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism (RAC-IL)
Based on the success of other state-wide organizing projects including Reform CA and Reform OH, in 2016, the RAC began exploring the interest in and capacity for building Reform IL–coming together as a movement and beyond to organize and leverage our power with partners who share our values. After a series of relational conversations with clergy and lay leaders, and research actions to explore common areas of concern we have agreed on the follow two areas of deep and common concern as the priority areas on which we want to focus our efforts:
Racial Justice, including criminal justice reform, gun violence, the impact of inequality in arenas such as healthcare and education, and the reality of white privilege; and
Immigrant and Refugee Rights
As one of over 30 participating congregation, we at Chicago Sinai Congregation are working to build a congregational team to work as a part of Reform IL.
