Yesterday, Jewish Community Action was out in George Floyd Square as part of a multi-faith vigil in sorrow and solidarity following the announcement of the verdict.
Watch JCA Community Safety Organizer Enzi Tanner recite an original poem and lead the chanting of the Mourner’s Kaddish for George Floyd.
Every speaker from every faith tradition had the same message: This was not the end of our pursuit for justice, only the beginning.
The systems of racist policing that allowed Derek Chauvin to murder George Floyd are still in place. At Jewish Community Action, we are committed to the long term transformation of these systems so no one else is lost to police violence. Read this feature in the Jewish Telegraphic Agency on Enzi's urgent organizing towards building that future.
This work takes all of us. We invite you to join us virtually for The Path Forward: From Grief to Action tomorrow night at 7:00 PM for JCA members and friends to hold space and set intention for the work to come.
