We endeavor to create an inclusive, equitable multi-racial democracy where all people are free to live, love, and thrive. For centuries, those in power have used antisemitism as a tool to divide our communities and undermine our joint pursuit for justice. And today it again being wielded to foment division and violence against Jews and other marginalized communities.
That’s why we started a campaign to combat antisemitism and white nationalism, by educating communities and organizations about the role these forms of hatred play in our current political environment, as well as the historic and current connections between antisemitism and Islamophobia, xenophobia and racism.
We are inviting Jewish community members and allies to attend Virtual House Parties to learn about antisemitism and how to push back against it. Our house parties offer spaces where people can ask questions, learn and find ways to help identify and push back against rising antisemitic and white nationalist rhetoric.

We are also convening the Combating Hate Coalition, a growing legislative coalition to reform Minnesota’s hate crime laws to allow for the communities affected & targeted to have a greater role in the reporting and education process. Click here for more info about the coalition!
