Justice is a Jewish value, rooted in a history of rising from oppression to freedom. JUFJ stands in solidarity with those who are fighting inequality and racism, ensuring that marginalized people have the rights and opportunities to which we are all entitled. Through community organizing, leadership training, political education, and advocacy, it annually mobilizes and educates some 2,000 volunteer leaders who, allied with local communities, engage in issue-focused local campaigns that lead to systemic change. In recent years, JUFJ has played key leadership roles in protecting critical safety net services, winning Paid Family Leave in DC, fighting for immigrant rights, and winning Paid Sick Days and the minimum wage increase in DC and Maryland. JUFJ will continue to advocate for a just recovery from the pandemic, working for eviction prevention, affordable housing, racial equity, and economic justice for all.
