Goal thermometer

For the past two years, I’ve been organizing with IfNotNow, a movement of young American Jews, leading our community to end its support for the occupation. While I've done all sorts of organizing on all sorts of issues, the work I've done with IfNotNow has been most meaningful to me -- and, I believe, already had the most impact.

Like so many others in this moment, I am afraid for myself and for my friends, family and neighbors, and the planet.

But I also have hope. IfNotNow spent the past year building a powerful foundation of a movement ready for action. We trained over 700 people in 8 cities on our unified strategy and theory of change.

All this came to head when Trump was elected, appointed Stephen Bannon as chief strategist, and the Jewish community was silent. We knew we had to be the moral leaders the establishment refused to be.

Over the past four weeks, IfNotNow has brought more than 3000 people into the streets under the banner of #JewishResistance.  

You can see photos from our “Day of Jewish Resistance” in 30 cities here.

Over the next few months, we will continue to build the #JewishResistance by mobilizing locally and across the nation. We want to train hundreds more people as members of IfNotNow, bring thousands more into the streets, and make the connection in our community between the moral bankruptcy of our institutions and the pro-Israel-at-any-cost politics that reigns in the American Jewish establishment.

However, we can’t make any of this happen without the support of our community.

I have pledged to raise at least $500 to support this work, and I have already committed $50 myself. I am asking friends and family to consider contributing at least $25 as well.
