BALTIMORE, MARYLAND

JUFJ Baltimore is working on campaigns to reform our city’s rent court, to fight mass incarceration and racist policing, to establish fair elections, and to make water affordable for all Baltimoreans. We collaborate with JUFJniks across the state 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.
