SSJC Taking Action

#Justice4Finan Protest and Vigil, May 24, 2020

Over 100 vehicles and people arriving on foot to protest the unjust and inexcusable killing of Finan Berhe on May 7, 2020.


Updates and Press Releases


On June 11, 2018, a Montgomery County police officer accosted, pursued,
and then shot and killed Robert White, an unarmed Black man strolling
in his own neighborhood. SSJC began as a community response to
Mr. White’s needless death and to the department’s conclusion that the
officer’s actions were lawful and justified.

About Us

Our Vision

Our Mission

The coalition draws from throughout Montgomery County, including
neighbors of Robert White, community members, faith groups, and civil and human rights organizations.

We envision a state and county where community and individual needs for safety are met while harm by police is eliminated.

We aim to create a paradigm shift in police-community engagement.
Race, class, ethnicity, religion, immigration status, gender identity, sexual orientation, ability, and mental health status must never again put people in Montgomery County at risk of state-sponsored discrimination and violence.
