Over the past few weeks, we have witnessed horrifying acts of police brutality targeting Black lives, coupled with insidious racism that continues to underpin our country’s systems and structures, all on the heels of a global pandemic.
This moment and many before it demand dedicated focus and resources to actively address and fight racism. So too within the Jewish community, we must do the same.
However, the Jewish community can no longer see our collective fight for racial justice as white Jewish Allies, reflecting an old narrative. In the 21st century we must move forward with clear understanding that our work must be done through the lens of the multiracial community that we, in fact, already are. We must follow the leadership and direction of our own Black Jewish leaders in this charge.
During this Fighting Hate from Home webinar, join Ilana Kaufman, Executive Director of the Jews of Color Field Building Initiative, Gamal Palmer, Schusterman Fellow 2019, Ginna Green, political consultant and strategist, and ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt for a conversation on the role of Jewish leaders, institutions, and communities in serving and supporting our entire multiracial community, and what that means in particular for Black community members.
