the original papercut
Jews need to do more and say more and be louder about our support of justice work in this country. Saying nothing is supporting the oppressive, unjust, and racist institutions that have been and continue to devalue Black lives.
Hang this poster in your synagogue, temple, or JCC. Make sure that all of your members and visitors know that you support justice, that Black Lives Matter, that we have a shared responsibility.
Hanging this artwork is one way you can be louder, spark conversation in Jewish community gathering spaces, prompt policy changes within our own institutions and raise awareness for the ways that we can do better.
Suggested minimum amount: $50 (for the smaller sizes). If you can afford to pay more, donate more; any extra over printing and shipping costs will go to the Minneapolis organizations listed below.
Once you have the poster, buy a frame for it, and hang it prominently in the entryway of your buildings, along with this translation and explanation (pdf).
Reclaim the Block: organizes Minneapolis community and city council members to move money from the police department into other areas of the city’s budget that truly promote community health and safety.
Black Visions Collective: This is what Black Lives Matter Minneapolis grew into, and they continue to organize for structural change. They are both on the ground and working on policy.
MOODI: a project of the cultural wellness center providing care to unhoused folks. This is CRITICAL work right now.
