We envision a region that is more equitable and joyous for all, with an emphasis on supporting the rights and leadership of people of color, low-income workers, the unemployed, women, LGBTQI, immigrants, and others struggling against systemic oppression. We draw strength from Jewish tradition, thought and culture to sustain our work. Detroit Jews for Justice was founded by Congregation T’chiyah to live out their mission of making social change central to the life of their congregation and committed to being a social justice organization owned by the entire Jewish community of Metro Detroit.
We unite to make climate change an urgent priority across America, end the corrupting influence of fossil fuel executives on our politics, and elect leaders who stand up for the health and wellbeing of all people.
United Renters For Justice (IX) works for permanently affordable democratic housing and structural changes: tenant unions, rent control, stronger enforcement, and cooperatively owned housing.
We convene Minneapolis tenants to analyze their housing problems; to strategize, organize, and mobilize around those problems; and to create affordable and dignified homes.
