Justice is a Jewish value, rooted in a history of rising from oppression to freedom. So JUFJ stands in solidarity with the vulnerable – fighting inequality and racism so that marginalized people can have the rights and opportunities to which we are all entitled. Through community organizing, leadership training, political education, and more, it mobilizes and educates some 2,000 people who, allied with struggling communities, engage in issue-focused campaigns that lead to systemic change at the local and state level. In recent years, it has played key leadership roles in protecting critical safety net services, advocating for marriage equality, fighting for immigrant education rights, dramatically increasing public investment in affordable housing, and raising the minimum wage in DC and Maryland. These campaigns have had a positive impact on hundreds of thousands of our struggling neighbors … but more needs to be done. You can rise up – and join in.
