Advocacy

At Hazon, we believe advocacy can and must take many forms. From convincing your synagogue to eliminate meat from their weekly kiddish to advocating for greater protections for sustainable agriculture in Federal policy, advocacy changes the world. That’s why, we are committed to raising our collective voice locally, nationally, and internationally with our friends, colleagues, neighbors, and partners.
