Fighting Poverty with Faith 2009 Event: Memphis

For those who might be seeking inspiration as we plan for 2010's Fighting Poverty with Faith mobilization, the JCPA is happy to present 3 great examples of interfaith programming undertaken during last year's campaign.  In 2009, the Memphis CRC ran a successful program entitled "Go Green, $ave Green."  The CRC hoped to bring to light awareness in both the Jewish and general communities about the need to go green from the perspectives of faith and environmental realities, the impact that going green could have on saving people money in the long term, and the connection between going green and job creation/alleviating poverty in Memphis.  Additionally, the Memphis CRC hoped to build partnerships with a number of local groups.
