The Jewish Council on Urban Affairs is working to transform Chicago into a city free of poverty, racism and antisemitism, by mobilizing the Jewish community to be a powerful voice for economic and racial justice. For 55 years, we have worked in partnership with diverse coalitions and directly impacted communities to address the root causes of disparity and advocate for concrete improvements in people's lives. With a growing membership of nearly 2,000 Jews across Chicagoland, we bring a committed base to three main program areas: issue-based campaigns, youth engagement and community investment. JCUA is the only Jewish organization based in Chicago using a community organizing model to advance systemic change on domestic issues with a local focus.
