We denounce white supremacy and stand with all Jewish communities
NAKASEC & Affiliates are outraged and saddened by the 11 lives lost on October 27 after a racist gunman, motivated by Trump's anti-immigrant hate speech, opened fire at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, PA. If you are able, please consider donating to this online fundraiser in support of the families of victims.
We believe ALL survivors
We commend Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and all the other survivors who have been impacted by the Kavanaugh Hearings. We see you, we believe you, and your story is valid. We are disappointed by the Senate's decision to allow a perpetrator of sexual assault assume a position in the highest of our nation's court. Read our statement here.
