Responding to Rising Tide of anti-Semitism and Islamophobia

Responding to Rising Tide of anti-Semitism and Islamophobia

NESRI stands against anti-Semitism and Islamophobia, two sides of the same white nationalist coin. We condemn last weekend's attack against the Jewish community in Poway, California, and the continued threats against Representative Ilhan Omar. We stand united against the atmosphere of hate fanned by media outlets and political leaders. We call for collective public solutions. We stand with those under attack as they mourn and rebuild.

In 1909, women in New York City first commemorated “National Women’s Day,” a decade before women secured the right to vote.
