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.

Where do you start to find resources about incentives and policies that support renewable energy and energy efficiency? What are the resources in your area that can help you start your projects on decarbonizing? What kinds of projects can you realistically take on given factors in your community, building, and region? Join us to learn more about how to find local resources, what to be looking for based on your organization’s objectives, and how to get started with the resources you have to take actionable steps in reducing your organization’s environmental footprint.
