A Statement on Social Justice

The Museum at Eldridge Street supports the movement to end systemic racism in our country. Since its founding, the Museum has remained committed to responding to community needs and to promoting equality for all people. We continue to work together with and stand in solidarity with all marginalized communities experiencing harassment, hate, and violence.
We believe all American citizens have a responsibility to uphold the virtues of justice and equity. And as a cultural institution dedicated to exploring immigration and culture in a dynamic immigrant neighborhood, the issue is even more salient. Eldridge Street recognizes the need to do everything within its power to foster diversity and inclusivity both at the Museum and in the greater cultural landscape of which we are a part. In the midst of recent tragic events, we are recommitting to our work to hear the voices and stories of those so often left out of history.
