In Support of the Protestors

In the past few weeks, we have seen an explosion across America. In cities spanning from coast to coast, people have stepped up to protest the unjust treatment and murders of African Americans at the hands of the police. We at the Jewish Youth Climate Movement would like to voice our unequivocal support for those who have fought and are currently fighting to make America an equitable place, a place where these killings can never happen again. As Jewish people, we have a responsibility to aid those in need however we can. As the Torah states, “Justice, justice shall you pursue,” (Deuteronomy 16: 20). To our African American and other community members of color: we see you. We hear you. We stand with you. To our white community members: we must support our siblings of color not just at this time, but at all times. Below are some steps we can all take to pursue justice.
