Challenging Anti-Semitism and Engaging in Allyship

Do you care about justice and community on campus? Are you interested in thinking about your own role as an ally? This workshop, by renowned equity trainer Yavilah McCoy will focus on skill-building and methodologies for allyship across difference, including a special emphasis on anti-Semitism – how it works (differently from other kinds of oppression), how to recognize it, and how to stand in support of your fellow Jewish students experiencing it. When we are able to support each other in the face of discrimination, we together raise up our community.
