West Coast Seminar
West Coast Seminar is April 28th-30th in Vancouver, Canada! 10th-12th graders are invited for a weekend with teens from Camp Miriam, our sister Habonim Dror camp up in Canada.
The program addresses three main areas through learning and hands-on experience:
Gaining Hands-on Organizing and Social Action Skills
Exploring Social Justice Education Rooted in Judaism
Developing Leadership Experience (Hadracha)
A key aspect of the program is trainings and partnerships in the community. In previous years, for example, the program included:
Immigrant justice work, including helping to organize a vigil at the Adelanto Immigrant Detention center
Participating in the campaign to pass SB10 and end cash bail in CA
Organizing 101 training with Bend the Arc
Creating music for social change workshop with filmmaker Melanie Zoey
Learning about student protest movements at the Boyle Heights Museum
