Starting with Ourselves: A Jewish Open Space for Anti-Racism

Often we feel we lack the language, support system, or knowledge to do or support anti-racist work. This gathering will be a supportive space to explore and reflect on experiences and assumptions in the service of ending racism. Come ready to engage in thoughtful and thought-provoking conversations. All questions, concerns, levels of understanding, and connections with Judaism are welcome! No experience necessary!
