Dismantling Antisemitism, Winning Justice: A Panel Discussion

Featuring Peter Beinart, Dr. Marc Lamont Hill, Dr. Barbara Ransby, Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib, and Rabbi Alissa Wise

Wednesday, December 15th

8:00-9:30pm EST 

Join social justice movement and political leaders as they share what fighting antisemitism looks like to them and how it connects to their own liberation struggles. Panelists will address their own experiences of fighting oppression, how they learned about and have experienced antisemitism, and how this informs their approach to dismantling antisemitism. Together, we will explore how learning from one another helps us fight against antisemitism, as well as those that seek to wield charges of antisemitism to undermine progressive movements for justice. We welcome all to join us for a conversation with this powerful panel of leaders committed to dismantling antisemitism and winning justice as a joint struggle for a world where all of us live in safety, vibrancy and freedom.
