JFREJ is a community within a community. At JFREJ you’ll find every kind of Jew, united by our common belief in justice. And all of us work in partnership with the grassroots social justice mosaic of New York City — fighting for a better future.
"I think there needs to be immense progress to not look at older people solely as donors. Older folks particularly who are queer or LGBTQ, are often living alone; they’re on fixed incomes; they’re dealing with illness. I had the realization at the (JFREJ) Jews for Racial and Economic Justice’s strategic visioning retreat, that we all need to bring our whole selves, all our intersecting identities, to our politics. Because my generation really fought, and saw ourselves, as revolutionaries."
New York Joins Mother of Ramarley Graham to Demand the DOJ Prosecute Officers Responsible for Son’s Death!
On February 2, 2012, the NYPD says a narcotics unit saw Ramarley “adjust his waistband” outside a Bronx bodega.
Police later followed him home, broke in, and shot Ramarley dead in his home—in front of his little brother and grandmother. Three years later there has still never been a criminal trial of the killer, NYPD Officer Richard Haste, or any of the other officers involved.
Along with his mother, Constance Malcolm, activists are meeting at the Department of Justice in New York City to demand that the U.S. Department of Justice stop dragging its feet in the investigation.
Come with us and demand justice for another live taken by the NYPD! #BlackLivesMatter!
