From Rabbi Morris Allen of Minnesota:
"These last two days have been filled with many phone calls, and the work of [our] committee has gotten off to a good start. I want to particularly thank Suzanne Bring and Jewish Community Action for [their] work in developing our phone protocol as it relates to our gathering of information, and in compiling a list of folks with whom we should be in contact. I encourage you to continue to be involved with our Social Justice Committee and the work which will continue most probably after our USCJ/RA report is completed."
