These federations are driving impactful climate action reducing carbon footprints while saving money and increasing communal engagement. Join us to hear three case studies from a diverse set of communities, and then participate as we think together about what models are most replicable and how we might accelerate the pace of change across the federation system.
Dayenu Circles are where people to take action to address the climate crisis with spiritual audacity and bold political action. There are more than 50 Dayenu Circles across the U.S., rooted in neighborhoods, congregations, on college campuses, and among friends. We're having an impact, from working to end neighborhood oil drilling in California to stopping a dirty fracked gas power plant in Connecticut, to working together across the country to pass the Build Back Better Act. Learn from Vicki Kaplan, Director of Organizing for Dayenu (a Jewish Climate Fest producer) and friends what Dayenu Circles are, our values and principles, how we work, and how to get started.
