Reconstructing Judaism was among fifteen organizations co-sponsoring the following statement, which was organized by Bend the Arc.
We remember the 11 Jews murdered at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh one year ago.
As Jews and allies, we reject fear and division, and we embrace diversity and inclusion.
We commit to organize toward a vibrant, multiracial democracy. #OurSolidarityWill build a country where all of us can be free and safe, no matter what we look like or where we come from.
We commit to hold callous politicians and corporations accountable for inciting violence and spreading fear to keep us divided. #OurSolidarityWill put them out of power and out of business.
And we commit to demand that every candidate running for office put forward concrete plans to combat the lies and policies that are killing so many of us. #OurSolidarityWill defeat white nationalism.
