Dear MoveOn member,
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. The violence against Jews in Pittsburgh is the direct culmination of their influence.
Donald Trump is planning to visit our community on Tuesday because he loves being a spectacle—but he refuses to take responsibility for dangerous and divisive policies Republicans put in place at his insistence. This petition is one way 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.
They have targeted the Muslim community, immigrants and refugees, people of color, and LGBTQ people, and in recent weeks we have seen a marked escalation in their use of antisemitic images, rhetoric and conspiracy theories.
Donald Trump, your words, your policies, and your party have emboldened a growing white nationalist movement.
The Trump administration, the Republican Party, and their enablers have provoked violence against our communities. Our blood is on their hands.
Now, we're asking Jews and allies across the country to add their 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.
–Tammy Hepps, Bend the Arc: Pittsburgh
