Antisemitism is Everyone’s Concern

Dock C. Bracy Center for Human Reconciliation

Location: Online

What is antisemitism, and why is it everyone’s concern?

Why is antisemitism so confusing and difficult to talk about or understand?

Please join us via Zoom on Wednesday, April 19, 2023, 7-9 p.m. EDT (UTC-4), Cherie R. Brown, Founder & CEO of the National Coalition Building Institute (NCBI), will present Let’s Talk Series: Antisemitism is Everyone’s Concern.

Registration is required for this event.

“We are honored to have Cherie present at this Let’s Talk Series event. It will be informative and provide all attendees with action steps on how everyone can eliminate antisemitism.” – Paul S. Bracy, Founder and President, Dock C. Bracy Center for Human Reconciliation

This presentation offers a working definition of antisemitism. It explains how antisemitism is used to divide groups from each other and how it hurts everyone—Jews and non-Jews alike. It describes why antisemitism is particularly harmful to working-class people and how it is used to shield those who profit from an unfair system. And it concludes with action steps that Jews and allies can take to eliminate antisemitism.
