Anti-Bias, Anti-Racism (ABAR), Self-Transformation
“Justice, justice shall you pursue.”
America has grappled with systemic racism for the past 400+ years and continues to be steeped in racism today. In order to move toward becoming anti-bias, anti-racist human beings, this part-lecture, part self-study program, explores topics such as white privilege, white fragility, systemic racism, social identity, and bias. It is our duty as Jews to make the world a more just and equitable place for everyone. This program is a judgement-free space to explore our own racial awareness and compel us forward in our ABAR self-transformations, as well as in our personal Jewish journeys. Join us!
