What are some of the challenges facing Black and Jewish communities coming together to support each other today? (eg. have things changed from these historical examples?)

Margaret Morgan Hubbard
50:55
Aryan, and anti-Semitism was as strong as anti-Black racism, as we saw at capitol too
Sage Morgan-Hubbard, she/her
52:37
Especially given this past year of racial protest and Anti-Black racism, we would love for you to address issues of racial prejudice within our own Jewish communities. How have your various intersectional identities impacted your experiences with justice initiatives within Jewish spaces?

01:10:47
What unique opportunities exist in the university context that allow for greater (or lesser) engagement across communities?What are some of the solutions for understanding, communication, compassion and allyship on an individual level? What resources would you encourage people to explore on a communal level?

If you have any questions, please feel free to message them to me directly. We will try to get to as many questions as possible during the Q&A at the end of the program (and can present your question anonymously if you’d prefer).
Natasha Nelson (She/Her)
01:15:57
As someone who is in a lot of progressive circles, I often feel that expressing my Zionism invalidates me from being part of the coalition (it is something I must hide or be ashamed of). However, it is a big part of how I see my Judaism, as I know it is for others. Is this dynamic anti-semitism and/or a reason for me to investigate my beliefs?
Natasha Nelson (She/Her)
01:16:24
OR How do Jews address issues of antisemitism without depriotizing issues of racism and anti-blackness?
Sage Morgan-Hubbard, she/her
01:20:10
Audience question: “I’m planning on creating a diversity & equity task force for my Hillel--How do I best go about this so I'm not tokenizing in any way?”
