Jewish Voice for Peace, Boston
Wednesday, Dec 21, 5 - 7 PM
Jews and allies standing against Islamophobia and racism invite you to join us as we rekindle our commitment to justice to mark the holiday of Chanukah. Join us in as we march from the State House to say NO to Muslim registries, NO to more immigration restrictions, NO to hate crimes, NO to Neo-Nazi antisemitism, and NO to racial and religious profiling. We call on Massachusetts elected officials to end existing surveillance programs like "Countering Violent Extremism" and not to implement Trump's Islamophobic policies in our state.
On that day, Jewish communities in 20 cities across the country will gather to stand up and continue to fight back. We know from Jewish history how dangerous xenophobic and scapegoating rhetoric can be, and it pains us that institutions in our community continue to defend Israeli policy at the expense of Muslim and Jewish safety. Now, more than ever, we must pledge to challenge injustice and build a society rooted in love and dignity for all people and communities. A Trump presidency accelerates the need for a mass movement in solidarity with all those at risk. On December 21st, we will be standing together, #ReadyToResist.
