#WeRemember: American Jews demand Rep. Carbajal Defund Hate

Description

This year, on the days between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, American Jews are mourning and taking action to stop attacks on immigrant families.

At the same time, the Trump administration is continuing to ask Congress for billions more dollars to escalate its cruelty on immigrant families and communities — including raids, cages, more family separation. On the holiest days of the Jewish year, how can we ask for forgiveness while our government commits crimes against immigrants in our names?

Join other progressive Jews in San Luis Obispo at a rally to defend immigrants right and uphold the #DefundHate principles. We will incorporate the Jewish ritual of placing a stone on the grave as we remember those who have died in the custody of ICE and CBP.

This action is in coordination with thousands of Jews around the country who are asking every Member of Congress to Defund Hate by cutting funding to and holding accountable ICE and CBP, the agencies that enforce Trump’s violent immigration policies.

During these Days of Awe our Jewish communities will say: “We remember and we reject attacks on immigrants.”

We remember the names of the children who have died in US custody.
We remember the families kept in cages, without soap, blankets, or water.
We remember the screams of children whose parents were rounded up in raids.
We reflect on our own history and how our people have been scapegoated, forced to flee, detained, and enslaved in the fight for freedom.
We atone for not doing more to stop our tax dollars from being used to dehumanize and attack immigrants.

And we commit to demanding Congress defund hate.
