Thursday, May 20 • 7:30 pm

The JCC Social Action Committee presents this two-part session addressing our responsibility to participate in dismantling structural racism as a crucial aspect of repairing our world.  To end racism, we must understand its toxic, destructive, undermining impact on all of us.  By courageously facing the truth about our history, we are inspired and empowered to change the present.  Please join us for this two-part conversation providing both the knowledge required to understand historical and present-day racism, and the tools to engage in anti-racist thought and action. 

Supported by the Jewish Historical Society of Fairfield County, Stamford Chapter of Hadassah, Temple Beth El, Temple Sinai, and Young Israel. (list in formation)
