“It is not possible to be in favor of justice for some people and not be in favor of justice for all people.”

–Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

We at Jewish Family Services of Washtenaw County denounce racism in all its forms. We stand with all in our community who are aggrieved and exhausted by the injustice of systemic racism and intolerance in our country.  May our community unite to promote peace and meaningful change.
