TOGETHER WE STAND BOLD FOR JUSTICE
TAO is proud to be a part of the mission of BOLD Justice to provide a vehicle for congregations of diverse racial, religious, and economic background to address the root causes of poverty and injustice through the empowerment of low to moderate income people.
CLICK HERE for more information on BOLD Justice.
The purpose of BOLD Justice is to affect institutional change for the benefit of low to moderate-income families in our county. We are not a direct service organization that focuses on the individual victims of injustice, rather we are a direct action organization that builds the power necessary to make system wide changes for the benefit of low to moderate income individuals by holding local officials and decision makers accountable for their decisions. Because our power is related to our numbers, BOLD Justice congregations have a vision of building their capacity to turnout their Average Worship Attendance (AWA) one time a year to do justice at a county wide direct action.
MONDAY, APRIL 4TH, 2022 at 7:30 pm
Please attend the large end of year meeting of BOLD Justice called, Nehemiah Action. Broward County government officials will be attending and will be asked to support this year’s issues.
Too Many Heat Related Hospital Admissions- Imagine your elderly parent, relative or friend having to suffer in the summer heat without air conditioning because they had limited income and had to choose between paying for food, rent or air conditioning?
Arrests vs Civil Citations for Minor Offenses- You did not renew your license on time due to lack of funds and were pulled over and arrested? Now you as a juvenile or adult have a record that affects your future training opportunities and employment. Bold Justice is advocating for more Civil Citations.
Mentally Ill and Homeless – Have you or someone you know had difficulty advocating for themselves due to mental illness and are now homeless? Bold Justice has requested more funding for permanent supportive housing for homeless people with mental illness.
You can help change the system by attending a very important meeting happening on April 4th at 730 PM. We get more done when a large group of us (hopefully over 1,000) advocate together. Members from twenty four religious congregations will be attending and we are the only Jewish Temple. TAO has the honor of our own Wayne Rogers saying the closing prayer.
The event will be on:
Monday, April 4, 2022 @ 7:30 pm
Charles Dodge City Center
601 City Center Way, Pembroke Pines, FL 33025
This will only be an in-person meeting. Bring your mask and arrive to register at 7:15 PM. It is a large facility with ample room for social distancing.
