Women’s Philanthropy Civil Rights Journey

November 6, 2022 - November 9, 2022

Join us on November 6 – 9 for an exclusive civil rights journey with Women’s Philanthropy

Join Federation’s Women’s Philanthropy and women from the Greater Washington Jewish community for an immersive and meaningful four-day journey to the heart of the civil rights movement. Together, we will learn about the struggle for equal rights and the courage of ordinary citizens who fought for justice and changed the course of history. Through this journey, we will also explore our role in tikkun olam (repairing the world) to do the work that still needs to be done for a more just and equitable world.
