Ta’amod: Stand Up!, an initiative dedicated to helping Jewish communal organizations and institutions create safe, respectful, and equitable workplaces and communal spaces, is launching a new call line to support individuals who have experienced or witnessed such behavior – online or in person.
The call line (833-760-0330 and at taamod.org/call-line) will provide national phone-based support, legal information, advocacy, counseling, and referrals to vetted local and national experts nationwide. The call line is free, anonymous, and confidential. Callers may be currently experiencing harassment or abuse in their workplace, or they may need support on an issue prior to the current pandemic- workplace situation.
