Brave Space Dialogue: Racism in the Jewish Community
October 26 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm PDTSuggested Donation: $18
A virtual presentation by Kiyomi Kowalski and April Powers
ABOUT THE EVENT:
The Jewbian Princess team led by Kiyomi Kowalski and April Powers, two Black, Jewish women, will create a brave space for a thoughtful dialogue about what it takes to create a welcoming community for Jews of all races and ethnicities. Jewbian Princess provides a space where people have an opportunity to practice their skills as upstanders and disruptors in a situation where they are witnessing and/or experiencing prejudice. Far from a lecture, the Jewbian Princess method requires active participation and dialogue among participants. Be prepared with your camera on, ready to contribute to a dynamic discussion with fellow Jews about how each of us can help create a more inclusive environment in synagogues, Jewish organizations, and communities.
