Are you ready to do some deeper work around racial justice and join with like-minded teens? Travel with Mitzvah Corps and make your summer a summer of meaning.
Mitzvah Corps American South – July 10-July 22, 2018
Active support of the ongoing Civil Rights Movement is an integral part of the collective Jewish identity. Participants on the Mitzvah Corps Civil Rights Journey will travel to communities that their peers have never heard of, hear stories of survival and resilience, and take an honest look at the complexities of racial inequality through the criminal justice system and beyond. These teens will not only follow in the footsteps of these incredible role models, but take a deeper look at contextualizing Southern history, innovative ways to combat inequality, and extrapolate these lessons to their communities back home.
