Stand Up Against Hate with Hadassah

Thursday, Aug 17 2017

A line has been crossed—Each one of us must see in Charlottesville an urgent call to action, a time for unity, to stand up and to speak out.

Since the horrors of the Shoah, our community has pledged to never forget, to speak out against hate and prejudice in whatever form it takes, whoever the targets may be.

We cannot stand idly by. Speaking out against hate and white supremacy is staying true to our moral compass. Our leadership must serve the people, working to bring Americans together, to take us closer to the "more perfect union" invoked in the Preamble to the Constitution.

Today, Hadassah joins the long list of organizations and politicians from both parties speaking out against unacceptable moral equivalency. We are grateful to see so many moral compasses line up together, including those in Congress and government who provided an immediate, bipartisan response. We are grateful to all in the Hadassah family who have acted in their communities to build bridges and to everyone working to that end across lines of race, faith and gender.

There is no place for Nazism, anti-Semitism, hate speech, bigotry and racism in the public sphere. Join with others calling for a national plan of action to combat Nazism, white supremacy and all forms of hate, which includes investing funds in countering violent extremism.

Together, we must hold our leaders accountable, and ensure that there is no doubt about the unacceptability of moral equivalency. Please join us in taking a stand.

7 WAYS YOU CAN STAND UP AGAINST HATE

  • Engage with members of your community and have meaningful conversations about the rise in anti-Semitism, Nazism, white supremacy and bigotry.
  • Reach out to organizations of other faiths and backgrounds to build coalitions against hatred in your community.
  • Urge your elected officials to condemn violence and hatred, calling out the dangerous Nazi and white supremacist ideologies behind them, and developing a plan of action. Take action via the Hadassah National Action Center.
  • Explore and get involved in educational efforts or security briefings in your area through local schools, community centers, houses of worship and other organizations.
  • Stay up to date on Hadassah's advocacy opportunities by registering for Hadassah's Advocacy Alerts and Updates.
  • Speak out on social media. Share Hadassah's graphics, posts and statements on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest. #StopTheHate
  • Forward this email to three friends.
