Postponed: Just Recovery Campaign Call

July 22, 2020 | 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
test
DC

Yesterday Chairman Mendelson moved to repeal a modest tax increase and instead cut funds to vital social services in the middle of a global pandemic and economic crisis. Our partners, including the organizers who were planning to present on tonight’s call, are calling for an action tonight in response to this shocking, undemocratic attempt to strip aid from DC families and excluded workers.

We are therefore postponing our Just Recovery DC campaign call.

Please email Zach Weinstein at zach@jufj.org for more information.

Make sure to check out our online action alert and guide for how to call and tweet at Council to make your voice heard. The links can be “Updates & Actions” on https://jufj.org/our-work/issue-campaigns/just-recovery-dc/

Workshop: Whiteness, Jewishness, and Policing

None of us is free until all of us are free

This year, JUFJ has deepened our work to support Black and Brown-led community partners' calls to defund police in our region. This work is essential in the local struggle for racial justice, but in addition to concrete action, it also requires us to look inside our organization and ourselves to ask some deep questions. What roles do we have as individuals, and as part of predominantly, but not exclusively white Jewish organizations like JUFJ in being complicit with and/or resisting police power and presence? How do whiteness and Jewishness impact these relationships to policing?
