June 30: Reform Jews March to Demand #FamiliesBelongTogether!

 

In cities across the U.S. this Saturday, Reform Jews are joining the hundreds of thousands taking to the streets to demand that the Trump administration end its zero-tolerance policy and reunite every child taken from their parents at our border. 

 

March with Reform Jews at the June 30 Families Belong Together Rally in DC - RSVP ONLINE!

  • Meet us in Franklin Square, on the corner of 14th and I St NW at 10:00 am
     
  • We'll hand out signs and buttons, and then march together to Lafayette Park for the Families Belong Together Rally.
     
  • If you are coordinating a bus for your congregation or community, please contact Emery Durnan (EDurnan@rac.org) for logistical information.
     
  • Rally organizers are encouraging everyone to wear white to make a visual statement of love and solidarity.

March with the Jewish Community at the End Family Separation Rally NYC 

From our friends at the Manhattan JCC:

"Meet at 9:30 am on the south side of Collect Pond Park (Leonard Street between Centre and Lafayette Streets). The nearest subway stop is the 1 train at Franklin Street. We will march as one Jewish contingent - the lead banner will say “Jewish Communities Standing For Justice” with no organizational identification. All organizations/institutions marching behind our shared banner are encouraged to bring your own signs, banners etc. For those Brooklyn-based synagogues who can participate later in the morning after services: please look for the contingent as we exit the bridge and enter Cadman Plaza. Questions? Contact Larry Moskowitz."
