HOLD THE LOS ANGELES COUNTY SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT ACCOUNTABLE - DEMAND CIVILIAN OVERSIGHT WITH POWER!
Accountability is a Jewish value and it's part of the way in which we take the responsibility of being free: "Just balances, just weights, a just dry measure, and a just liquid measue, shall you have; I am the Lord your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt." (Lev. 19:36). If we MUST have just measures and weights how much the more so MUST a society "weigh" and "measure" the actions of its Sheriffs and make sure that they are "just"?
TAKE THE PLEDGE TO JOIN THE JEWISH MOVEMENT TO END RACISM IN AMERICA
$10 BUYS A TREE TO BE PLANTED BY PALESTINIANS AND ISRAELIS TOGETHER FOR FAMILIES IN THE WEST BANK.
In honor of Tu B'Shevat, join us in the IndieGoGo campaign
to plant the trees with farmers whose trees have been uprooted, torched or cut down by Israeli extremists --
farmers who rely on those trees for their livelihood.
Don’t let the Congress defund immigration reform!
President Obama announced his executive action on immigration at the end of last year.
That landmark reform shielded up to five million people from the terrifying threat of deportation.
Now, Republicans in Congress are trying to roll back these reforms, and worse. We can’t let that happen.
