Take A Stand
Designed to allow women 45 and under to put their Jewish values to work, Take a Stand! offers participants the opportunity to advocate on behalf of stem-cell funding and research in the United States and support the state-of-the-art Center for Human Embryonic Stem Cell Research at Hadassah Medical Center in Jerusalem. In one day at the Washington DC National Convention, Take a Stand! raised $180,000. For varying donation amounts – beginning at $360 a year (just under a dollar a day) – young women can target their giving to Take a Stand! and become a member of its Advocacy Corps. Those involved will receive frequent e-mail updates about important issues, events and legislation related to stem-cell research; will lead community members to meet with local officials to advocate on behalf of favorable stem-cell legislation; will represent Hadassah in coalition with other local groups that support stem-cell research, and will present educational programs for community members. For more information about Take a Stand! please call contact Hadassah at the National office. Call (866) 229-2395 or e-mail Youngwomen@Hadassah.org.
