Standing with Pittsburgh and Louisville

October 29, 2018 -- Partnership for Working Families

We mourn those who were terrorized and murdered by white nationalist violence this past week in Louisville and Pittsburgh. Our hearts are with the families of the victims and the survivors of these attacks, and their communities which have been shaken to the core.

These are violents acts, motivated by a movement whose ultimate goal is to deepen divisions and take over our civic institutions. The shooters targeting the Tree of Life Congregation in Pittsburgh and the First Baptist Church in Louisville continue a spate of white nationalist violence targeting people inside safe sanctuaries.

As we mourn, we recommit ourselves to practicing solidarity, to collective action, and to building a world where this cannot happen, where we are all free and have dignity. We stand in solidarity with Jews across the country, with victims of racialized violence, and we reaffirm our commitment to organizing at the intersections of racism, anti-semitism and misogyny.
