Official Statement Following the Presidential Election
Following the presidential election last week, there have been growing expressions of concern and heightened conversations about a perceived climate of bigotry and intolerance toward religious, racial and ethnic minorities, and members of the LGBT community. As Jews, we take our responsibility to speak out against hatred extremely seriously, not only because the security of our own community is entwined with the security of other minority communities, but also because our moral values as Jews and Americans demand it. The Federation will continue its fight for equal rights, tolerance, and respect for all, any time that actions are threatened or taken in contravention of these values.
