To be delivered to Republican Party, President Donald Trump
President Trump, your words, your policies, and your Party have emboldened a growing white nationalist movement. The violence against Jews in Pittsburgh is the direct culmination of your influence.
We demand you and the Republican Party:
Fully denounce white nationalism,
Stop targeting and endangering all minorities,
Cease your assault on immigrants and refugees, and
Commit yourself to compassionate, democratic policies that recognize the dignity of all of us.
73,689 signatures. NEW goal — We need 75,000!
The massacre of 11 Jews in a Pittsburgh synagogue comes at a time when the Trump administration, the Republican Party and their enablers — at all levels — have fomented hate, fear, and white nationalism in our country.
They have targeted the Muslim community, immigrants and refugees, people of color, people with disabilities, and LGBTQ people, and in recent weeks we have seen a marked escalation in their use of antisemitic images, rhetoric and conspiracy theories.
The Trump administration, the Republican Party and their enablers have provoked violence against our communities. Our blood is on their hands.
It is time to rise up together to demand our safety. We refuse to be divided. We refuse to be isolated from each other. We will outlive their hatred.
Now, we’re asking Jews and allies across the country to add your names to the demands of Jewish leaders in Pittsburgh who are rising up to demand the White House renounce white nationalism so we can all be safe.
