When I returned to Detroit more than 2 years ago I knew that finding and building a Jewish Community was important to me. Lucky for me, Nora Feldhusen had reached out to tell me about Detroit Jews for Justice and, unbeknownst to me, recruit me as Organizing Chair. She succeeded and I couldn't be happier about it; DJJ has since been my home and my vessel for practicing my Jewish values and organizing for social justice in the city. I have been lucky to contribute to our Paid Sick Leave and Regional Transit Campaigns, as well as help develop our Campaign Advisory Team, now an efficient governance and organizing tool. It makes me kvel to see the sincere and meaningful connections DJJ has made in supporting progressive Detroit organizations such as the Peoples Water Board, Motor City Freedom Riders, and Mothering Justice. So far DJJ has done amazing things to educate and organize metro Detroit Jews, all the while taking real action on important regional issues; I look forward to seeing how much more we can accomplish together. Thank you for helping support DJJ and a more just metro-Detroit region.

DJJ is building Jewish political communities we can be proud of—communities based on local and intergenerational relationships, that practice solidarity with all oppressed people, and that embody the world we want to live in. We are building Jewish spaces that center the young, queer, non-white, and disabled among us, spaces that people won’t run away from. We are following the lead of movements of other marginalized groups, and building deep coalitions that will protect each other from the far-right. But in order to do all of this well, we need resources.

DJJ relies on its extended community for a substantial portion of our budget because we need to, but also because it reflects DJJ's commitment to letting our volunteer leaders guide the organization.  If you value the work of local, progressive, Jewish political organizing, donate today to celebrate a breakthrough 2022!

Thank you so much for your generous gift! Your support makes this work possible.
