The cornerstone of OUDC’s program is our transformational Summer Journey in July. Our young leaders stand on the battlegrounds of past struggles in New York and throughout the Deep South. They study in-depth the history of the Black and Jewish experiences in our country. Civil Rights-era leaders and foot soldiers share their stories from the front lines of the Movement. Modern-day justice advocates illustrate the work still to be done and how to get involved. Our students learn from each other, spending hours exploring issues, having honest dialogue, and developing steadfast relationships that erase racial, religious and ideological boundaries.
