In The Community

On May 2, faith communities from across Savannah will gather with local leaders to advance the cause of justice, as called for by the prophet Nehemiah. This gathering will be under the banner of Justice Unites Savannah Together (JUST), which is an interfaith alliance of 22 congregations in Savannah. AA is a founding member of JUST. The purpose of JUST is to advocate for policies that create a more just and equitable community.

By vote, the JUST member congregations voted to focus on two key issues: affordable housing/homelessness; and, a bail and bond system that puts and keeps people in jail unnecessarily. Excellent progress has been made to date:

·        The advocacy of the JUST Housing Committee was crucial to obtaining a $7 million allocation from the Savannah City government. The Committee is now working to ensure resource allocations remain high and are used appropriately.

·        The Cash Bail Committee is pursuing a two-track strategy that will (1) expand the small Early Intervention Program so that people who need substance abuse counseling, mental health services or other forms of rehabilitative services are able to do so rather than ending up in jail; and, (2) radically upgrade the now woefully inadequate data collection that makes an analytic understanding of the criminal justice system extremely difficult.

On May 2 at 7:00 PM, 700-800 representatives of the participating congregations will gather in the Johnny Mercer Theater to meet with senior city and county government officials. PLEASE JOIN THIS CRITICAL GATHERING TO SHOW THAT AA IS PART OF THE MOVEMENT FOR JUSTICE IN SAVANNAH.

The May 2 gathering is named Nehemiah Action Night in honor of the prophetic call for justice. Nehemiah Action Night will be an opportunity to formally present JUST’s proposals to city and county leaders. It is important Congregation Agudath Achim be well represented.
