The Local Community Relations Program

By Harry I. Barron

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, March 1948

This piece explores local community relation programs. The author highlights the importance of programs aimed at combating organized hate movements and demagogues while stating that casework with individual incidents doesn't necessarily address the fundamental issues. One specific effort includes the use of mass communications media to reach different and specifically targeted groups. The benefit of this is that the subject receives the attention of the group as a group and it provides the opportunity for inter-personal reaction and participation, rather than more passive reading or listening. The piece concludes by affirming the value of participating in cooperative efforts to combat these issues in hopes of building a better society where people can live together in peace and security.
