NAI Statement on November 9, 2016

JVP’s Network Against Islamophobia (NAI) reaffirms our commitment to join with Muslim, South Asian, and other communities impacted by and organizing against Islamophobia, white supremacy, and anti-Arab racism.  We recommit to fighting for a country rooted in deep principles of love and dignity for all people.

As Jewish partners in this work, we recommit to being more visible in challenging Islamophobia within our own communities. We recommit to being principled, consistent partners. We recommit to standing and acting in solidarity with broader movements for justice led by those most impacted by Islamophobia and racism. We recommit to being vigilant as we stand with those being targeted by state-sponsored and individual acts of Islamophobia, joining the large grassroots movement of Muslims and others who have been standing and acting with strength and integrity.

We invite you to join us in our work as partners in the broader movement: to take public actions that make visible our positions and commitment to justice; to canvass in our communities with messages like “We stand with Muslims against Islamophobia and racism”; to step up and step forward in the face of Islamophobic attacks; to continue to build and strengthen our relationships and work with Muslim communities; to engage in community learning toward meaningful, long-term action and resistance to Islamophobia and anti-Arab racism.

We refuse to be silent in the face of any or all forms of Islamophobia, racism, and injustice.

Contact us at NAI@jvp.org so we can work together to continue and strengthen this work.

Visit the Network Against Islamophobia for more ways to take action.

Booking.com: Tell the Truth

Days ago, Booking.com bowed to pro-Israel activists and started describing all of Jerusalem as a “city in Israel” – literally erasing Palestinian East Jerusalem. Let’s get Booking.com to tell the truth: East Jerusalem is occupied territory.

Senators: Investigate Israeli Violence!

No one should be killed for taking part in a peaceful protest. It’s up to us to call on progressive Senators to investigate Israel’s massacre in Gaza that killed over 100 Palestinians wounded 12,000 others.
