Join JUFJ in Montgomery County for a watch party of a full Council budget worksession!

While we anticipate favorable outcomes for funding for nonprofits, rent assistance, and homelessness services, JUFJ and our partners in the MC Defund/Invest Coalition are asking for additional funding for culturally competent, licensed clinical social workers (LCSWs), which is not yet guaranteed in the budget. 

Our watch party will begin at 9:30 AM. We will begin with a short relational activity, and then review background information on the budget. The worksession will begin at 9:45 AM.
