National Council of Jewish Women (NCJW) Sacramento is a volunteer organization founded in 1959 and inspired by Jewish values. NCJW courageously takes a progressive and visible stance on issues such as child welfare, women’s rights and reproductive freedom. Political advocacy on all governmental levels – local, state and federal is a strength of our section involved in issues that impact our community and the entire state.

But NCJW Sacramento doesn’t limit its advocacy to government maintaining and supporting programs in our community. Family Shalom, beginning in 1999 (now Advocacy and Education) was our flagship effort responding to the issue of domestic violence occurring in the Jewish Community. Since then, the section has taken on the issues of elder abuse, teen relationships human trafficking and the support of organizations in the community who focus on the homelessness of women and children.
