Last night thousands of Jews and allies gathered together in spur-of-the-moment vigils across the country to hold each other in grief and outrage at the murder of 11 Jews in Pittsburgh. Thank you for joining us.
Today we are turning our grief to action to send a clear message that these attacks can never happen again — not to Jews or to anyone else.
If you are in DC, join us at 3pm eastern TODAY on Pennsylvania Ave outside the White House. We are bringing demands from the leaders of our Pittsburgh Moral Minyan, and showing up with our allies in solidarity, to demand the White House take responsibility for inciting white nationalist violence on our communities.
RSVP and get more details on Facebook to the DC rally today.
Facebook Livestream: If you’re not in DC, tune in around 3pm to our Facebook page to watch and share the livestream. www.facebook.com/jewishaction.us
