Rooted in justice.
Rising up in solidarity.

Pursuing Justice 2020 Online took place May 3-4, 2020, in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, increasing antisemitism, and the most critical election year of our lifetime.

For two days, 1,100 Jewish movement builders, leaders, experts, and allies gathered virtually as a community committed to political transformation. Together, we dove into the most urgent and complex problems facing our nation, bolstered by wisdom from our ancestors and tradition, and inspired by brilliant leaders and partners who are dreaming of a better world.

Thank you to everyone who joined and supported Pursuing Justice 2020 Online.

Art is a key part of our movements — it motivates and inspires, reflects our vision for the world, and drives us to action.

This digital mural was created in an interactive open space facilitated by artist Jessica Valoris. In this session, participants were encouraged to contribute their dreams, ideas, doodles, quotes, and inspirations to our interactive digital collage that evolved throughout the day.

This downloadable poster from our virtual swag bag, designed by Sam Fine & Tom Haviv, reminds us that we are resilient, connected to our ancestors and future generations, deeply rooted in our values, and committed to building a country where we are all safe and free.
