While we have not tracked an incident locally, we know that hate is on the rise against our community, as well as our Muslim, AAPI, and LGBTQ+ neighbors.
In our Antisemitism 101 workshop, we teach how antisemitism functions as a structural oppression that divides communities and undermines solidarity across lines of difference.
That's why we are doubling down on organizing alongside other communities targeted by hate and violence. We can, and must, address attacks targeting Jews while still showing up in solidarity for others.
This is central to Jewish Community Action's work. We call out antisemitic actions when they occur, and we also train community members and partner organizations to understand the machinery of antisemitism.
Join us for our next Antisemitism 101 workshop next Thursday to learn more about it functions and how we can work together to fight against it.
At the same time, we are co-leading the Communities Combating Hate Coalition's advocacy for hate crime reforms at the state level, so that hateful incidents targeting all Minnesotans can be tracked and addressed.
We are so close to getting this bill passed in the special session, but we need your help getting it over the finish line. Take a moment to tell our state elected officials TODAY to combat hate in Minnesota.
Our liberation from fear and oppression is tied to the liberation of others. Together, we can all get free.
