Rochester ACTS Fundraising
Your financial support is needed today

Thanks to people like yourself we’ve had a successful year. From one end of Monroe County to the other, members of congregations and organizations got involved and supported the work that we are doing.

I suspect that you value this movement as much as I do. In order to continue our organizing we need your financial support.

Today is an excellent day to contribute. Please click here to make a donation.

No matter what your faith tradition, you and I share deeply felt values about justice, dignity and respect. We are coming together across racial and ethnic lines, in the face of efforts to divide and conquer us. And we are joining together just as scapegoating and hate crimes are on the rise.

You’ve seen this trick before – stir the pot, inviting “us” to separate from “them.”

Whether it’s campaign trail talk about “law and order,” “get tough on drugs” “makers and takers,” “Real Americans,” or “build a wall,” we’re invited to eye each other with contempt and forget our common daily struggles.

And the result? We’re seeing it right now. As I write this letter, elected representatives in Washington DC are considering legislation that takes healthcare away from seniors, people with disabilities and workers struggling with low wages, while giving hundreds of billions in tax cuts to the wealthy and corporations.

We need to build a powerful movement, rooted locally, that brings all of us together. Whether you have grown up with privilege or whether you have faced obstacles and have been marginalized, all of us, together, must have our voices heard.

I consider you part of that movement.

More RESULTS? See It has been a productive year at Roc/ACTS!
