Jews For Racial & Economic Justice (JFREJ)


For 25 years, Jews For Racial & Economic Justice (JFREJ) has pursued racial and economic justice in New York City by advancing systemic changes that result in concrete improvements in people’s everyday lives. We are inspired by Jewish tradition to fight for a sustainable world with an equitable distribution of economic and cultural resources and political power.

The movement to dismantle racism and economic exploitation will be led by those most directly targeted by oppression. We believe that Jews have a vital role to play in this movement. The future we hope for depends on Jews forging deep and lasting ties with our partners in struggle.



Every year, gun violence kills almost 33,000 Americans and injures 75,962 more. More than 17,000 children and teens are shot, many of them fatally. And over 455,000 people are victims of gun crimes. These statistics are more than just numbers – they represent a very real human toll. Although most of these shootings don’t make headlines, each victim has a story – a family, friends, a life cut short.
