Following the synagogue attack Colleyville, Texas, our Jewish community is faced with a familiar choice: We can solely focus on creating security solutions that help us confront the violence and antisemitism our community faces head-on, or we can strike a balance between crisis management and actually addressing the roots of the violence we face to begin with, and create solutions that leave behind no one in our community.
I believe that we will keep each other safe.
We will keep each other safe is a commitment to reimagine a safe Durham and Orange County free from the antisemitic, racial, and gendered violence that Jews and our neighbors face every day. It is a call to raise the bar for our conversations about safety to imagine a world where ALL Jews and our neighbors can live in peace.
If you're interested in building a safer Durham/Orange County for all Jews and our neighbors, take a moment to add your name below and, if you'd like, let us know if there are any ways you especially enjoy taking action or want to take action.
In the coming weeks, one of our organizers will be following up to talk with you about how we can work towards a safer Durham/Orange County together.
