Speak Out Against White Supremacy
The United States has been stricken by an alarming surge in activity by white supremacist groups, and the thread that runs between Charlottesville and Pittsburgh, and Poway to Monsey and up to Capitol Hill is hatred and antisemitism. Violent extremists, once relegated to the fringes of society, are once again front-and-center. Urge the White House to prioritize this issue by championing stronger hate crime legislation and demanding an education for all Americans that emphasizes tolerance and understanding.
On Wednesday, January 27, the Department of Homeland Security issued a warning for domestic terrorism. Last fall, the Department of Homeland Security and FBI documented in their "White Supremacist Extremism Poses Persistent Threat of Lethal Violence" report that white supremacist violence was responsible for more US fatalities than any other category of domestic terrorists since 2000.
Urge the President to continue speaking out and prioritize this issue with congressional leadership! Rolling back the threat of white supremacists will take all of us working together as one.
