Repair the World NYC invites you to honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. this MLK Weekend through learning and service.
Action in a Time of Injustice: MLK Shabbat Dinners in Brooklyn and Harlem
On Friday, January 12, 2018 Repair the World NYC is hosting two "Action in a Time of Injustice: MLK Shabbat Dinners" to celebrate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. through conversations about race, faith, equity, and justice. One is at the Picnic House in Prospect Park, and one is at JCC Harlem. Together we will explore how we can take action in our local community and #TurntheTables on injustice. Nourished by OneTable. Check out our MLK Shabbat section for details.
Meaningful Service Opportunities
Over the course of the weekend, we are offering opportunities to participate in meaningful service projects, to contextualize our experiences through facilitated service-learning, and to join a coalition of Jewish organizations and partners coming together to have a positive impact on our community. Check out our Volunteer in Brooklyn and Volunteer in Manhattan sections for details about all of our volunteer projects.
About Repair the World NYC
Repair the World NYC launched in Brooklyn in the fall of 2015 to tackle pressing local needs by mobilizing communities to volunteer. We enable people to transform their neighborhoods, city and lives through meaningful service experiences, rooted in Jewish values, history and heritage. We have eight full time fellows in Brooklyn and two full time fellows in Harlem. Our fellows partner with many organizations to recruit and train the volunteers needed to address education and food justice needs across NYC and with a focus in Central Brooklyn and Harlem. Repair the World’s collaborative community storefront space at 808 Nostrand Ave is a hub for service and social justice initiatives. Learn more about us on our Website, Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.
Our NYC weekend of service is part of Repair the World's national campaign. As we honor the unending work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., we join the fight, amplify work that is being done, and move towards repairing the world. We #ActNow in solidarity with directly impacted communities to address immediate needs created by institutionalized racism and other intersecting injustices. #ActNowForRacialJustice
