Home / Programs / Mitzvah Corps DC
In partnership with the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism (RAC), the Reform Movement's lobby located in the heart of the nation's capital, Mitzvah Corps DC is a week-long intensive focused on developing the skill set to be a political advocate on issues you care about most. 
Take advantage of the RAC's longstanding reputation in the DC and Jewish communities, the historic significance of learning in the same room where the Civil Rights Act of 194 and Voting Rights Act of 1965 were drafted, and exposure to top political and community leaders. You'll experience a real, immersive, social justice education, and finally put it all together by lobbying to your congressional representatives!
