NATIONAL COUNCIL OF JEWISH WOMEN
793 PIEDMONT AVENUE, N. E.
ATLANTA, GEORGIA 30308
ATLANTA SECTION
876-7236
September 7, 1967
Mayor Ivan Allen, Jr.
City Hall
Atlanta, Georgia
Dear Mayor Allen:
The National Officers of the National Council
of Jewish Women, as well as one of the local officers of
the Atlanta Section, attended the Washington conference on
Urban Coalition, of which we know you were an important
leader.
Council has in the past shown great leadership in implementing programs which contributed to the
welfare of all our citizens. At a time when the nation is
confronted with a potentially dangerous situation in its
urban areas, we must do all we can to help solve the problems in our community. If you are not already aware of
Council's present programs - we are locally volunteering
in two Atlanta schools in poverty areas , namely Grant Park
School and Ware School. Our program has been extremely
successful, and we have found our greatest achievement
from a "one to one" experience. Our Golden Age Employment
Service, for all people over fifty, has contributed much
toward helping the hard core unemployed secure jobs which
.have made them self sustaining citizens. Being one of the
partners in Women in Community Service, we are daily
processing girls for the Women's Job Corps.
The Urban Coalition statement of princi~les,
goals and commitments and the Council of Jewish Womens
purposes are similar. We would welcome the opportunity
to be of help to you in implementing these programs in the
Atlanta community. Please let us hear from you about your
plans for Atlanta and how our organization might help you
locally.
Sincerely,
__ ' } u _ , ~

Mrs.
Shubin, President
Atlanta Section
National Council of Jewish Women
