PENNSYLVANIA — State Representatives Jared Solomon and Jordan Harris, along with several other colleagues, announced the creation of the Black-Jewish Caucus on Monday at a Capitol news conference. The caucus aims to investigate and rekindle the historical relationship between the two communities, in order to work towards social justice together.
“Since the Civil Rights Movement, Black and Jewish people have united in their efforts to promote equity and social justice,” said Solomon. “Our goal is to revive this relationship to tackle today’s challenges head-on. Every legislative victory begins with relationship-building, and working together to address bigotry will be an excellent starting point.”
Solomon also mentioned a plan to collaborate with Republican colleagues in order to make this a bipartisan effort in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives.
