The Election Was Only the Beginning

Over the past year, Jewish Community Action members and staff have devoted ourselves to working within multiracial coalitions to keep everyone within our communities housed and safe.

We held challenging community conversations, led text studies, made hundreds of phone calls, and knocked on countless doors advocating for expanded public safety and rent stabilization. This is the multiracial, grassroots organizing that creates real systemic change.

And last night, it delivered the first rent stabilization policies in the Midwest, a significant step toward addressing the affordable housing crisis in the Twin Cities.

And while the results on Question 2 in Minneapolis were not what we hoped for, we are proud that more than 60,000 residents dared to imagine a system of public safety that included all the resources our communities need. This movement has changed the conversation about what keeps us safe, and we look forward to continue working for accountability and racial equity.

This is the hard, challenging, and essential work Jewish Community Action has done for the last 26 years. It has driven major changes that have positively impacted our communities - from tenants protections, to minimum wage increases, to anti-hate initiatives.

Each one of these wins comes after years of organizing, and we cannot let up now. It's time to double down on the local, grassroots, progressive Jewish organizing that results in real transformative change in our communities beyond elections.
