Amid this long overdue reckoning with racial injustice across the country, we recognize that we must all stand up and speak out alongside our Black brothers and sisters, heeding their calls, and the calls of other voices of color, so that together we can dismantle systemic racism and ultimately realize true justice and equity for all.
While UJA isn’t new to the work of social justice, there’s much more for us to learn and much more work to be done. We’re committed and invested in our own ongoing education and in bringing about much-needed societal change. And we invite you to join us by exploring some of the resources that we, our nonprofit partners, and others are providing to address the entrenched injustices in our community.
Thank you for taking up this work with us.
UJA engaged in an interfaith, multiracial conversation with our partners at FPWA (Federation of Protestant Welfare Agencies) and Catholic Charities that explored how racism has historically shown up in our faith and how we can use our faith to combat it.
