At a time when hate crimes against Black churches, synagogues and mosques are spiking, we need to connect the dots between anti-Black racism, anti-Semitism and Islamophobia, understand white supremacy, and build collective resistance to it. Here is an opportunity to engage with Muslim, Jewish and Black youth activists in order to come together as a community. No one is free until we are all free.
THROUGH THIS EVENT WE HOPE TO:
–connect the dots between different forms of racism and discrimination
–understand how white supremacy operates so we can resist it
–bring communities together, and encourage collaboration and political dialogue
–allow younger people to lead the conversation,
–and celebrate solidarity by eating together.
This community discussion will be moderated by Mara Ahmed.
