Yesterday we hosted In Memoriam 2020, a virtual event remembering and honoring the 11 victims of the October 27, 2018 synagogue shooting, confronting anti-Semitism, white supremacy, anti-immigrant hatred, and the easy availability of guns, and calling for action. Over 300 people registered and despite some technical glitches, the video has been viewed almost 1200 times, as well as shared. If you didn't get a chance to participate yesterday, please watch and share the event. We have also posted a 'clean' copy, without the glitches.
We are grateful to everyone on our faith and community partners - see them here.

Following In Memoriam 2020, we partnered with Bend the Arc Jewish Action: Pittsburgh and One PA for a voter engagement phone bank and with the Emily Skopov and Lissa Geiger Shulman campaigns for two candidate phone banks. All told, volunteers made over 13,000 phone calls and spoke to over 1400 voters. AMAZING! This is the work that elects gun safety candidates.
