Arizona Jews for Justice leads pandemic relief effort for vulnerable communities

-

- Advertisment -

It’s Thursday afternoon, delivery day for Austin Davis. 

He packs hand sanitizer, water bottles, face masks, deodorant and other toiletries into dozens of clear plastic bags to load into his car. 

Austin Davis prepares to hand out care packages at "The Zone."

Davis arrives and parks at a place he and other volunteers have nicknamed “The Zone,” Phoenix’s central tent city. Rows of tents line the dirt lot and house children, families and elderly.

Joined by other volunteers, Davis will walk down these rows, tent-by-tent handing out individual care packages to the hundreds of residents of this makeshift shelter just blocks away from the state Capitol.

Davis is a proud member of Arizona Jews for Justice, a pluralistic Jewish organization dedicated to providing a safe space for the Jewish community and engaging in social activism through rallies, events and donation drives. Since January, Davis has led the organization’s Homeless Outreach Program.

Arizona Jews for Justice also serves the community in other ways.

Unfortunately, Arizona is no stranger to anti-Semitic rhetoric. Students at Arizona State University found posters reading “Hitler was right” across campus on two different occasions this semester.
