Whether it’s protests in the streets or signs in apartment windows, calls for racial justice are everywhere. We are a multi-racial Jewish community dedicated to healing a fractured world.  But, in these turbulent times, what can we do beyond making a statement to make a meaningful difference? The answer is: quite a lot! In this highly participatory online workshop, we will explore historical and contemporary cases that will prepare us to join with our own communities and our neighbors. You will get a chance to reflect on your own experiences and leave with new tools that will enable you to take action and engage effectively with friends, colleagues and community leaders.

Join one or more of these stand-alone, and connected, sessions, the first of which is August 7th.

Presented by JOIN for Justice: The Jewish Organizing Institute and Network, with support from UJA Federation of New York
