Join South Bay Jewish Voice for Peace on Sunday, March 18 at 1:30 PM
Roberto Cruz Alum Rock Branch Library, 090 Alum Rock Ave., San Jose
There have been a number of incidents in San Jose in recent months that call out for a community response. One school alone. Fischer Middle School in Alum Rock Unified School District - recorded 15 anti-Muslim incidents last year, ranging from derogatory comments to spray-painted graffiti. One library had several incidents and it was not the only library where patrons experienced this.
One way we can build support for targeted groups is by posting visual expressions of this support. The South Bay Jewish Voice for Peace chapter has organized three canvassing days in the Mountain View/Sunnyvale area. This month we'd like to walk a San Jose neighborhood. Our canvassing events consist of a brief orientation that includes information, discussion and time for role playing. Then we break up into teams to knock on doors, asking businesses and residents to hang one of two posters that say:
- "We stand with Muslims, Arabs and immigrants."
- "No matter where you're from, we're glad you're our neighbor." (In English, Spanish and Arabic)
This is a time to come out and show love in action - a time for solidarity. Be there! Please RSVP at:Facebook de South Bay Jewish Voice for Peace or email@example.com
