“Good Jobs, Education, Healthcare: A Germantown for All”

According to Myke Simonian, writing in the the Peoples World, in January 2018, about twenty residents turned out for a panel discussion titled “Good Jobs, Education, Healthcare: A Germantown for All.” The discussion featured three representatives from Germantown’s Black community: Victoria Greene, Executive Director of E.M.I.R. (Every Murder is Real); Ted Stones, community activist and Democratic Party committeeperson; and Dr. Sheri Faulkner-Davis, Senior Program Director of the Center for Innovation in Worker Organization at Rutgers University. The event was moderated by poet and Communist Party USA member Irving Jones.

Ms. Greene spoke of her organization’s work in supporting those who have lost family members to gun violence in the neighborhood. Over time, E.M.I.R. has developed into a leader on this front. In September, it hosted a conference on gun violence bringing in over 200 participants, including city council members and progressive State Senator Art Haywood.

In his comments, Stones pointed out that, “A young person does not kill another young person because they are better dressed or because of a girl. They do it because they hate themselves. Capitalism has taught our (Black) youth to hate themselves.”

Stones continued, “We need a new, Left, Black leadership. Our current leaders have failed our community. We need to figure out how to unite our diverse, Black community to fight for real power.”

Audience member Seth Anderson-Oberman, political director of the American Federation of Teachers for New Jersey, pointed out that while Germantown is statistically poor, it is home to many local organizations, from churches and mosques to block organizations and civic groups. “Why don’t we take that energy and build a campaign to organize the workplaces in our neighborhood?” [10]
