Anti-Semitism & White Nationalism: Non-Jewish Allies Session

  • CAIR-Minnesota (CAIR-MN) 2511 E Franklin Ave Suite #100 Minneapolis, Minnesota 55406 United States (map)

From the host:

Join Jewish Community Action for a series of conversations about the intersection of White Nationalism & Anti-Semitism with Eric Ward and Dania Rajendra. In two sessions, one for the Twin Cities Jewish community, & the other for our non-Jewish allies, we will learn how to identify, confront, and ultimately dismantle anti-Semitism within & around our communities.

This is the SECOND or TWO conversations JCA is hosting. This event is geared towards our non-Jewish allies, and will center identifying, confronting, and dismantling anti-Semitism within non-Jewish spaces, and in solidarity with the Jewish community.

NOTE: while this session is designed for non-Jewish allies, EVERYONE is welcome to attend either session.


This event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served. You can read the biographies of our featured speakers below:
