JCRC Hosts Post-Election Call-In Programs

The elections are over and we are facing a new reality. Some in our community are satisfied and comfortable with this; others are experiencing challenging emotions. The Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) encourages members of our society to actively participate in our community.

Focusing Forward, Post-Election

JCRC is hosting a two-part conference call series of one-hour calls to hear from some of our constituent organizations as to their perspective.
These calls are off the record and no press will be specifically invited.

Goals:

  • For community members to gain some perspective and receive helpful information from community leaders and their organizations
  • For us all to begin a process of really listening and hearing one another, even if we disagree
  • To help community members in moving forward together

JCRC Chair Ben Lusher will moderate the calls and JEWISHcolorado President & CEO Doug Seserman will make Closing Remarks.
