Join us for our next Racial Equity and Policing Team meeting to get updates about current campaigns and take action together. Everyone is welcome!
Judaism’s ethic of mutual care calls us to hold police accountable to the people, which is why JUFJ and our partners have been calling to restore local control over the police in Baltimore — the only city in Maryland that doesn’t oversee its own police department — since 2018. Join us as we phone bank for Question “H” to put the Baltimore Police Department under the city’s control for the first time since the mid-1800s.
Join us as we kick off our work in this new Maryland legislative session! At this event, you’ll learn about our issue areas and partners. We will share campaign options, ask what you are most excited to work on, and how you want to get involved. If you want to be part of shaping our work for our most people-powered session yet, please join us for this important event. Everyone is welcome!
Our next full coalition meeting will be on Thursday, November 3 at 4pm on Zoom. We will be joined by some of our national partners who will provide us with a federal update on paid leave efforts and help us view our campaign in the scope of what is happening nationally. We'll also talk about the 2023 Maryland General Assembly and what we'll be doing as a coalition this session.
Raise awareness about this historic ballot measure on Election Day with JUFJ and our partners at CJSJ, SURJ, and CASA. Help pass local control in Baltimore by signing up for a shift on Election Day! Folks must attend a Zoom training on Monday from 7-8 PM, and pick up materials at CASA on Sunday from 10 AM - 1 PM, or JUFJ on Monday from 12 PM - 6 PM. You will receive more information via email after you RSVP.
