Detroit Jews for Justice
Detroit Jews for Justice (DJJ) organizes the Metro Detroit Jewish community to participate in movements for racial and economic justice. We draw strength from Jewish tradition, history, thought and culture to deepen and sustain our work. We believe that our history as an oppressed people compels us to act in solidarity with other communities who face oppression. At the same time, we recognize that today the Jewish American community has a responsibility to use our power and resources for social change. We envision a region that is more sustainable, equitable and joyous for all, with a particular emphasis on supporting the rights and leadership of people of color, low-income workers, the unemployed, women, LGBTQI folks, immigrants, and others struggling against systemic bias.
