Judaism teaches that helping fellow human begins in need, tzedakah, is not simply a matter of charity, but of responsibility, righteousness and justice. The Reform Movement has always acted upon fundamental Jewish ideals by advocating for children, the poor, the disenfranchised, the elderly, the sick, those with disabilities, and the “stranger among us.”

Urge Congress to Pass a Living Wage
The cost of living in the United States has long eclipsed the minimum wage. At $7.25 per hour, an employee who is working 40 hours per week, 52 weeks a year, earns only $15,080. An increase to the minimum wage is imperative if we expect people to be able to support themselves with a full-time job. It's time that our federal minimum wage becomes a living wage. Urge your member of Congress to support the Raise the Wage Act.

Stand Up for Paid Family and Medical Leave
No person should have to choose between caring for themselves or a family member and keeping their job and income. Yet each year, millions of workers are forced to make that difficult choice. The United States is the only advanced economy that does not offer any paid family leave to its workers. Paid family and medical leave provide employees the necessary time to recover after illness or surgery, to take care of an ill family member, or to care for a new child. Urge Congress to pass the FAMILY Act to provide paid family and medical leave for all workers in America.
