One year since the Tree of Life shooting, hear from organizers and analysts on the front lines combating antisemitism through building solidarity and fighting for safety for all.
What is antisemitism? How is it connected to other oppressions? How does it fuel White nationalism? How is it used by Trump and other right-wing leaders to advance a racist, exclusionary policy agenda?
In this webinar, we’ll commemorate the anniversary of the Tree of Life shooting by examining these vital topics. We’ll hear from Jewish organizations on the front lines, and strategize together how to confront antisemitism by building solidarity between Jews and other marginalized groups, animated by an inclusive vision of a world where everyone can thrive.
