JFS Richmond mourns the intolerable death of George Floyd. We stand with our community and nation in commitment to racial justice. We work every day to fight injustice and inequality by bringing needed human services to individuals across Richmond regardless of race, faith, income, gender or sexuality.
Our Richmond community can only be strengthened when everyone has a role in assuring the well-being of others. For 170 years, JFS has been guided by our founding value of Tikkun Olam, “Repairing the world and our community by dedicated acts of service and kindness, one person at a time.” Now more than ever, we pledge to continue working with other organizations to bring just, equitable human services to the Richmond community.
We must each take responsibility for the well-being of others by demanding social justice and racial equity in Richmond. We all have a role to play in repairing the world.
