Rabbi Jonah Dov Pesner and Yolanda Savage-Narva issued the following statement on behalf of the Union for Reform Judaism, Central Conference of American Rabbis, and wider Reform Movement in response to Representative Cori Bush’s introduction of a resolution supporting reparations for Black Americans.
"We condemn the U.S. House of Representatives’ passage of the Protection of Women and Girls in Sports Act. Despite its name, this bill provides no protections for transgender women and girls and instead prohibits them from participating on sports teams that align with their gender identity."
Please join us for this 3-part series, where we will deepen our commitment and our capacity to leverage our positions as white antiracists in our effort to create multiracial multicultural communities where Jews of all backgrounds can experience belonging.
This is the cover note of a letter to the 118th Congress outlining the Reform Jewish Movement's policy priorities and urging all Members of Congress to join us in pursuit of a more just and equitable world.
