Meet the Change is an open invitation to change-makers from across the spectrum: teachers and students, social workers and social entrepreneurs, artists and lawyers, investors and innovators, organizers, educators, and agitators - anyone and everyone seeking co-conspirators for activating their Jewish and social justice values. Each event present the efforts of a featured change-maker while encouraging attendees to connect with one another around their own ideas, desires, and plans for making change.

Our SF launch event will feature Joshua Kahn Russell, Grassroots Action Manager at the Rainforest Action Network and trainer for the Ruckus Society. Joshua was a lead organizer for the largest civil disobedience on Climate Change in U.S. history, helped coordinate mass actions of thousands at the United Nations, and helped build national coalitions and networks around ecological sanity and racial justice. At 26 years old, he has spent over half his life criss-crossing the continent to wage winning campaigns, train activists, and help build compelling movements for change.

Joshua will use mixed media and popular-education formats to lead the group on an interactive journey through U.S. social movement history and strategy, with examples and stories from his own work. He will teach a set of tools that you can use in your own work, and a framework for how to make grassroots change. Storytelling, video, photo, games, & exercises are just a few of the ways youll be engaged. Be ready to meet one other, get up and move, have fun, and learn a lot!
