#AmplifyVoices

This January, Repair the World is asking you to join us in our #AmplifyVoices campaign to Act for Racial Justice.

In this campaign, we are pairing leaders in the Jewish community in conversation with activists for racial justice to further the discussion on racial equality and invite our audience to take action through volunteerism.

Our interviewers have each come up with 5 questions to ask our interviewees, to inspire service and to become active participants in creating solutions for issues we face today.

We hope to #AmplifyVoices loud enough to incite action, and open hearts and minds.

Join the conversation at:

facebook.com/repairtheworld

instagram.com/repairtheworld

We’re hoping to stir a healthy conversation around social justice and your voice is important.

The first #AmplifyVoices interviews are here! Click through the list below to learn more about these outstanding leaders and activists.
