*** YOUR DAILY DO'S - MONDAY, 7 AM *** Katie Anthony
I will stand with you.
1. STAND WITH AMERICAN JEWS - Jewish Community Centers across the US have been targeted with bomb threats over the last couple of weeks, including our own Mercer Island JCC. A number of Jewish cemeteries have also been defaced and vandalized. Cowards are terrorizing our children, and our beloved who have passed. Make no mistake - these actions are designed to marginalize and terrify American Jews. Stand with our Jewish brothers and sisters today by: Contacting Senators Murray and Cantwell to ask them to condemn these hate crimes with a strong, coordinated Federal response.

2. STAND WITH SIKHS - In Kent this weekend, a white man approached a Sikh and told him to "go back to his own country," then shot him. Stand with our Sikh brothers and sisters by tracking down your closest Gurudwara (Sikh house of worship). Like the page on Facebook, and send them a message of support.
3. STAND WITH UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANTS - Contact your local Sherriff, who is an elected official, and ask that person to focus on community safety, not immigration enforcement. Wall-of-Us has a great tool that will help you locate your Sherriff and give you some more background on this issue:
