Suggested Actions

Memorializing Kristallnacht by engaging in confrontation with fascists and their sympathizers can look many different ways. If you need a place to start, here are a few examples:

* Hold a sit-in in the lobby of a corporation that finances or benefits from the dealings of fascists.

* Hold a Yizkor service for those killed in the Shoah – and for all those who have fallen in the fight against fascism.

* Have a joint assembly with your non-Jewish comrades about anti-Semitism, Islamaphobia, xenophobia, and anti-black racism.

* Hold a self-defense or bystander intervention training in your living room with 10 friends.

* Launch a boycott of the white supremacist businesses in your area.

* At your Shabbat dinner, invite guests to discuss steps you could take to remove fascism from your own community.

* Organize a sing-in, musical gathering, dramatic performance, or artistic convergence at sites of anti-fascist resistance and from there, march to the consulates of states where pogroms or attempted pogroms are taking place with impunity: Australia, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, India, Israel-Palestine, Myanmar, Poland, Russia, Turkey, Ukraine, the United States of America; hold a speak-out once you arrive.
