Taking as its call to action racial injustice in Ferguson, Baltimore and elsewhere, Agudas Achim’s Social Action Committee focused programming in 5777 on the issue of Racial Justice through Learning, Conversation and Action. We held a series on dialogues on race and reconciliation. Then we started meeting with the Social Justice Ministry of Alfred Street Baptist Church. Our goal is to increase understanding and meaningful dialogue between the Black and Jewish communities and identify critical issues of concern to address in partnership.
