Mission

Over the past fifty years, JCUA has flourished as the Jewish voice for social justice in Chicago. Our longstanding mission, to combat poverty, racism and antisemitism in partnership with diverse communities, has been a constant and unifying message and guiding light for our work. Today, JCUA and its members are powerful allies and advocates for positive social change in Chicago. We work in partnership with coalitions and directly impacted communities to address the root causes of disparity in our city.
