On 30 June 2020, No Silence on Race addressed an open letter "from Black Jews, non-Black Jews of colour, and our allies to Jewish congregations, federations, foundations, organizations, nonprofits and initiatives," urging the latter to "uphold the tenets of justice and equality and to commit to the creation of a truly anti-racist, inclusive and equitable Jewish community." To that end, the authors of the letter—Sara Yacobi-Harris, Akilah Allen-Silverstein, and Daisy Moriyama—devised nine pillars "intended to support Jewish congregations, federations, foundations, organizations, nonprofits and initiatives in their transformation towards greater inclusivity and equity." Those nine pillars were: allyship; education; Indigenous education and relationship building; equity consultancy; employment and recruimtnet; equity, inclusion, anti-racism advisory; Jews of colour leadership strategy; programming/events/partnerships; amplify the voices of Jews of colour in Canada.
