As the Talmud teaches us, "Whoever destroys a single life, it is as if they destroyed an entire world." The violence of white supremacy is never singular the systemic racism that allows Black people to be murdered with impunity is destroying our whole world.

We can, however, build new worlds, and Carolina Jews for Justice stands in solidarity with the Black leaders – within our Jewish community and beyond – who are actively fighting for and constructing that future. Please join us.
