I went off script when I represented DJJ at the Women’s March in Detroit. I looked out at the beautiful, diverse, passionate and hopeful mass, and I felt a clear need for us to connect with each other. I called on the crowd to say to their neighbors:
I’m gonna keep building beloved community with you.
I’m gonna keep building messy movements with you.
I’m gonna keep showing up for you.
I’m gonna keep holding you accountable -- with love.
When our movements splinter, white supremacy and patriarchy benefit. We are deeply grateful for the visionary Jewish Women of Color who called our community in and pointed us forward. Watch their brilliant leadership shine in this video.
Detroit Jews for Justice is here to make sure that, in our small corner of the world, Jews remain an essential partner in coalitions that strive for our shared thriving. Thank you for making it possible.
