INFO ABOUT IFNOTNOW & RESIST AIPAC, RECLAIM AND REIMAGINE OUR COMMUNITY:
What is IfNotNow?IfNotNow is a popular movement led by young Jews building a vibrant future for our American Jewish community by demanding freedom and dignity for all people and an end to our community’s support for the occupation. More info about IfNotNow can be found on the website: http://ifnot.net.
What is the Resist AIPAC, Reclaim and Reimagine our Community Mobilization?We are presenting a vision for our community, a vision of a joyous and liberated community that opposes the occupation and demands freedom and dignity for all. At 50 Years of Occupation, we know that we have let AIPAC present themselves as a major voice of the Jewish community for too long. They are out of touch with the values of the Jewish community by their support of endless occupation and support for the Trump administration. We will bring our message to Washington, DC this March to Resist AIPAC, Reclaim and Reimagine our Community.
Wondering if this Mobilization is right for you?Jews and allies of all ages and all levels of experience attending actions are welcome! IfNotNow is building a movement led by young Jews and we're bringing our elders, entire community and allies along with us.
