Each year at the Seder, Jewish folks read this line in the Passover Haggadah, “In every generation, a person is obligated to see themselves as if they had left Mitzrayim.” SONG offers our Haggadah insert to uplift the question, “We must ask: what are we willing to do to fight for freedom?” As justice-loving people across race, class, culture, and faith, we all have a stake in building a world where safety does not equal policing, targeting, or caging Black, Muslim, Latinx, or immigrant people. Coming out of Mitzrayim today means standing on the side of all oppressed peoples and opposing white supremacy and systemic racism in all its forms, including Zionism.

Between now and the week of the Black Mama’s Bail Out Action (May 6-May 13th, 2019) dedicate your Passover to bailing out Black mamas and caregivers to be with their families for Mother’s Day.
