This week, IfNotNow is taking direct action to confront the Trump Transition Team and the Jewish Establishment demanding that they #FireBannon.
Join us on Tuesday evening for a campaign call. This is for anyone looking to learn more about IfNotNow's strategy, plan actions to #FireBannon, and build the #JewishResistance needed in this moment.
Bannon is a white nationalist who has built a political career out of demonizing Muslims, immigrants, women, the LGBTQ community, and Jews.
The Jewish community knows what it means to be vulnerable and have our identity be targeted. We know that state-sponsored violence is not a combustion of flames but a slow onset of sparks. We will not be silent as Trump stacks his administration with those who will endanger us as Jews along with Muslims, immigrants, women, and people of color.
Yet the leadership of some of our community’s largest institutions refuse to speak up against Trump, Bannon and their dangerous policies. Some have even defended Bannon on the grounds that he supports the right-wing Israeli government and the ongoing occupation of the Palestinian people.
We will continue to speak loudly, at every step of the way, for our own safety as Jews and for the safety of others vulnerable to attack. We will be the leaders our communal institutions refuse to be.Welcome to the #JewishResistance.
