CHUTZPAH 2022 WAS DAYENU’S NON-PARTISAN GET-OUT-THE-VOTE CAMPAIGN. In partnership with the Environmental Voter Project, Dayenu volunteers phone-banked and knocked on doors in the 10 weeks leading up to the 2022 midterm elections.
We identified and called infrequent and likely-Jewish voters who care about climate change in races across key states like Georgia, Arizona, Pennsylvania and Virginia.
“The Torah commands us to do this kind of thing; to try to create justice in the world. And climate justice is one of the big ones.” – VOLUNTEER Dan G., Pacifica, CA
The goal of Chutzpah 2022 was to elevate climate as an election issue and mobilize our community to connect with and inspire voters who care about climate change. We did this through phone-banking shifts and in-person canvassing events filled with Jewish spirit and song.
