How You Can Support the Family of Antwon Rose II

From the Social Justice + Social Action Committee of Rodef Shalom:

 Friends and Congregants,

Our Jewish community knows pain and trauma. Our Jewish community also knows the power of unity, seeing clearly the ways in which our Pittsburgh neighbors supported us after the shooting on October 27th.

We invite you to join in supporting the family of Antwon Rose II in any way you can leading up to next week’s trial.

1Hood Media has helped to spread the word about some key ways in which we can console the bereaved and advocate for justice. 1Hood Media is "a collective of socially conscious artists and activists who utilize art as a means of raising awareness about social justice matters affecting people around the world." Their tweet, pictured below, reads:

“As we prepare for the impending trial, here are some ways we can rally around Antwon Rose II’s Family. Please share and show love! #J4A [Justice For Antwon]” The trial begins March 19.
