Today is Yom HaShoah, the day in the Jewish calendar in which we honor the victims of the Holocaust.

We remember the 6 million Jews and countless Roma, Sinti, political dissidents, ethnic Slavs, LGBTQ folks, and disabled people murdered by the Nazis and their collaborators.

Every day, we at JCA honoring the memory of these ancestors by seeking freedom, safety and justice for all people. We do that by working in coalitions that center communities and people most directly impacted by injustice.

As we've seen a troubling resurgence of white nationalist organizing and aggression, we know that solidarity with other communities across lines of difference is essential to the world we are building together.

As part of the Communities Combating Hate Coalition, a diverse group of 14 community-based organizations across the state, we are advocating for bold hate crimes reform that will allow Minnesota to accurately count and combat hate in our state.

But here's the thing: The bill is stuck. It has passed through two committees in the House, but hasn't gotten a hearing in the Senate.

That's why we need you to tell your state elected officials to combat hate in Minnesota and pass HF 1691/SF 2003.

76 years ago, we said “Never Again”. As we honor the memory of those lost to hate, let's recommit ourselves to making that promise real for everyone, everywhere.
