On Wednesday February 8th, Muslim and Jewish youth will gather in Philadelphia to declare our uncompromising unity.
Young Muslims and Jews, allies of faith and secular allies will show what it looks like to fight hate and fear with love and hope.
We are coming together to commit to unconditional solidarity between our communities.
We know that when Donald Trump orders a Muslim ban it is an attack on all of us. We know that we must treat this moment as a ban on all of us.
Our generation, most young Americans and American Jews and Muslims in particular have learned, over and over again in school, what happens when people are silent, when people stand by and do nothing..
And we say, “never again.” Not today, and not ever.
In the past week, refugees fleeing war and genocide arrived in America seeking safety from religious intolerance only to be detained, have their facebook profiles checked, questioned on their political views in regards to Donald Trump, and in some cases, sent back to their home countries.
People now more than ever are awakening to the American nightmare that so many have known for so long. The hate and terror of white supremacy that runs deep in America and has been used to divide and conquer and oppress poor people, people of color, immigrants and religious minorities for centuries.
And now, as we stand on the edge complete moral destruction, it is time for us to lead, the next generation of America, the generation that is going to inherit this world. The generation that will have to pick up all of the broken pieces of Donald Trump’s empire of hate and fear.
We say the pieces the pieces becaus we have NO doubt that Donald Trump and his government will crumble, and it will be crumble under our fierce hope and our unconditional solidarity.
This event is for all Muslims and Jews and allies.
We are not looking for organizational endorsements but if individuals want to get involved please direct message us!
On Wednesday, we will claim a new America. Built by us and for us. For all of us.
