JUFJ Baltimore is working on campaigns to reform our city’s rent court, to fight mass incarceration and racist policing, and to make water affordable for all Baltimoreans. We collaborate with JUFJniks in Montgomery County during the Maryland General Assembly session to win things like paid sick leave, and to block dangerous legislation that targets poor Black and brown Marylanders.
Our ongoing community education work includes Jewish learning programs with local synagogues and havurot, where we explore how our traditions call us to work for social justice.
We are excited to offer a 32-hour course, Building Racial Justice as Jews, based on Baltimore Racial Justice Action’s anti-racism curriculum, designed for Jews who want to be effective working for racial justice. This course begins on September 22, and applications are due by Wednesday, September 18th.
