These are the beautiful words of one of our current participants, Ana Dorotea, to her community, and beyond.
I am talking to you, reader. From human to human.
I am calling out to you about what is happening right now in our world and in this society. As you may have heard, Masa announced it would stop funding Achvat Amim (Solidarity of Nations). Achvat Amim “gives "voice to the Jewish tradition of human rights", connects participants to projects that aim to end racism, violence and inequality as an essential building block for a society based on values that are central to Judaism, such as justice, equity, and peace”.
I call it a tragedy, because I believe that censoring the truth and denying brotherhood and solidarity to our fellow brothers and sisters is indeed a tragedy.
I call it a tragedy, because denying to help end racism, violence, and inequality, is to act against justice, equity, and peace.
I am writing this to you, whoever this is, because I want to call out to you, from human to human. We need to wake up and rise against what we are doing to each other and understand that we are all partners of a race, a human race.
Acvhat Amim is made up of people who help out, really giving out a hand, focused on bettering the conflict; a situation that, in terms of humanity, shouldn’t even exist.
What I am trying to say, and thank you for sticking with me so far, is that you and me are brothers and sisters of the same race. It is our obligation to give a hand to those brothers and sisters who need it, and end oppression, racism, violence and inequality.
The good prevails. For whatever political reasons this decision has been made, nothing can stop the rising of the good. So, as a reader, as a participant of the human race and thus of this conflict, I ask you to support the program with a donation.
With your donation, you help Achvat Amim to continue on helping to better our community and giving a space for voices who speak about finding solutions and improving this situation.
Let yourself be an accomplice of the good to our fellow human beings.
