WickedLocal Roslindale: Roslindale painters union gives $10K to Holocaust Memorial
On Nov. 13, members of the Roslindale-based painters union and representatives from their union contractor employers furthered their commitment to the Holocaust Memorial and their stewardship of the memorial in the form of a $10,000 donation to support its upkeep and material needs.
“The painters and glaziers have been with the Jewish community and the memorial since the very beginning,” said Wayne Murphy, director of government affairs at IUPAT DC 35. “We believe it’s our moral obligation to speak up and stand up against anti-Semitism. When the memorial was defaced last year, we stood with the Jewish community and repaired the damages. Today, with this donation, we are proud to continue standing with the community again.”
