We Cannot Give Up
By Dr. Andrea C. Kandel, NCCJ President & CEO
Here at NCCJ, we are planning educational forums and hot-topic discussions to address what is happening in our country. We hope to contribute in creating and advocating for safe, inclusive and just communities for all, and I mean ALL.
In that spirit, I have included a link to an article by Michelle Alexander that I feel is an important read for all of us who care about social justice.
And I leave you with these words from The Talmud.
"Do not be daunted by the enormity of the world’s grief.
Do justly, now. Love mercy, now. Walk humbly, now.
You are not obligated to complete the work, but neither are you free to abandon it."
Andrea C. Kandel, Ed.D.
