Prizmah and A More Perfect Union are coming together to spotlight nonpartisan, high-impact opportunities to protect and strengthen American democracy at a critical time for our nation. Learn how we can work together to expand opportunities for civic learning, cultivate the practice of democracy, ensure free, fair, safe, and accessible elections, and promote ideological pluralism this year and far into the future. Everything discussed has been vetted for nonpartisanship and is tailored for leaders and teachers at Jewish day schools.
