Justice, Justice, You Shall Pursue

You are not obligated to complete the work, but neither are you free to desist from it.”
Pirkei Avot 2:21

Now, more than ever, we are obligated to ensure that the lives and welfare of all of our brothers and sisters are safeguarded; specifically, we must actively condemn and eliminate brutality and unjust treatment against all people of color.
