3. Ongoing Actions
Giving Sanctuary: Support the Episcopal Church of St. John
One of the drawbacks to not owning a space is that, as much as we want to be a sanctuary congregation, it's not possible. But our partner and neighbor, St. John's, is currently sheltering three Central American refugees who are at risk of deportation. So we can still provide funds for their basic material needs and be a virtual part of their sanctuary. Donate to Father Richard Smith's discretionary fund here, make a note that your gift is to be designated to the "Rector's Discretionary Fund".
Starting with Ourselves: A Jewish Open Space for Anti-Racism
Join Bend the Arc and Jewish community members on the first Thursday of every month in a supportive space to explore experiences and assumptions, in service of contributing to a world free of racism. All questions, concerns, levels of understanding, and varying connections with Judaism welcome. For more info and to RSVP, click here.
4. Share Your Privilege
5. Stay in the Know
The Kitchen Justice League Facebook group is the best place to go for more info on our events and to connect with other members.
Jewish Community of Action Against Hate is a new Facebook group that is committed to speaking out against racism, bigotry, anti-semitism, and homophobia.

WHAT IS THE JUSTICE LEAGUE?
The prophet Jeremiah said "Work for the good of the city to which I have carried you...for when it prospers, you will also prosper." We think he might've had something. We're thinking about San Francisco and how we can work on taking care of the people who make it home.
See, we think that we're here in the world to help bridge the gap between the world as it is and the world as it ought to be. So we're weaving the pursuit of justice, equality and dignity for all people into the fabric of what we do.
You in? There's work to do here and we need your help.
