Jews for Racial and Economic Justice (JFREJ) Jews for Racial and Economic Justice (JFREJ) and NYC Against Hate, have been organizing to prevent and address hate violence for the last several years. JFREJ believe we need stronger, more effective solutions for hate violence and must invest in approaches that actually prevent violence through education and community-building.
