Racial Justice & Equity in Response to the Killing of George Floyd

Tuesday, June, 2, 2020

UPDATED: Friday, June 5, 2020


As we continue to bear witness to the pain, anger, loss, and frustration expressed by so many in cities across the country, including our own, systemic racism continues to reach out from the depths of our country’s history to shake us awake in this present moment.

JCRC will help our community actively listen to the voices, and cries, of our black friends, neighbors, family and community members. We will share statements, articles, and resources directly from our partners in the Black community. Resilient listening is only the start. It is one small, but important way, we can be allies in the call for – and collective march toward – justice.


Below is a list of posts and articles we have shared on our Facebook page this week. You can also view them on our websitehere:
