A Multi-faith Call-In to Call Out Hate Crimes

Copy_of_Multifaith_Call-In_(2).jpg

In this urgent call-in, our panelists from impacted communities will provide a critical context to understanding the the targeting of two Black elders in Kentucky and Jewish elders in Pittsburgh. Their murders reflect the rising anti-Black, anti-Semitic, and xenophobic hate crimes.  On Thursday, October 24, 2018, Vicki Lee Jones, 67 and Maurice Eugene Stallard,69  were murdered at the Kroger in Louisville, KY. Bush targeted Jones and Mallard because they were Black, and claimed that, “Whites don’t shoot whites,” before the shooting spree that claimed the lives of the two elderly victims. Then on, October 26, 2018 Daniel Stein, 71; Joyce Feinberg, 75; Richard Gottfried, 65; Rose Mallinger, 97; Jerry Rabinowitz, 66; brothers Cecil Rosenthal, 59, and David Rosenthal 54; husband and wife Bernice Simon, 84 and Sylvan Simon, 86; Melvin Wax, 88; and Irving Younger, 69 were murdered at a synagogue in Pittsburgh, PA. The gunman wrote anti-semitic tweets before storming the Shabbat services. The multi-faith community has risen up with vigils, creating spaces for communities to mourn, declaring solidarity with the Pittsburgh congregation. This conversation aims to bring together legal experts, educators, and social workers who confront the various aspects of hate. From a mental health professional who supports targeted communities in  processing collective trauma, a lawyer whose book features testimonials of hate crime victims, and an educator working to educate youth on hate crime intervention and prevention, each participant brings an important perspective in the collective work that’s necessary to counter the rising tide of white nationalism.
