Exploring the BLM Movement from Jewish Perspectives

Thursday, August 6, 2020 16 Av 5780

12:00 PM - 1:00 PMZoom

Join for the second of two great panels. Each event features inspiring thought leaders!

The Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement is one of the most prolific, and provocative social movements in decades. Utilizing a decentralized network of local chapters and tech-savvy activists, BLM chapters can tailor their engagement in real-time to draw international attention to systemic racial disparities Black people experience every day.

Yet, because each chapter has its own unique communication style, sometimes other messages, including antisemitic tropes and anti-Israel bias, also enter into the fray, which begs the question, can Jews support the BLM Movement?

Join the Jewish Studies at Queens University of Charlotte, the Federation’s Jewish Community Relation’s Council, and Temple Beth El as we offer two unique opportunities to explore the ways in which our Jewish community intersects with the BLM Movement. Please consider joining us for one, or both of these engaging discussions each with a unique panel of thought leaders including academics, rabbis, Jews of color, and community leaders.
