Hadassah Statement on Racial Justice

Monday, Jun 1 2020

Please take a moment to read and share this important, timely statement:

Hadassah reaffirms its long-held commitment to racial justice, as we join people across the country in condemning the murders of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor.

Hadassah stands in solidarity with communities of color and with all those from Jewish and other communities denouncing instances of police brutality and all aspects of systemic racism. As an organization and as individuals, we must listen, question our own biases, and speak out against racism and bigotry in our country.

Our hearts go out to our members, staff, and community partners of color, and we pledge to continue serving as allies in this fight.
