It’s 2017. The Civil Rights Act and Voting Rights Act were passed in 1964 and 1965. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was killed in 1968. Much has changed since then and much has remained the same. This past year we’ve seen a resurgence of public, overt racism – a normalization of hatred and bigotry. What can we do about it? One concrete thing is to shed light on the racism we encounter and to engage those saying and/or doing racist things in conversation. Join us to learn and practice tools to assist us in interrupting racism and other “isms” in our lives. Take home resources to continue our learning.

Baltimore Jewish Cultural Chavurah, Baltimore Jews United for Justice, and Chizuk Amuno Congregation Brotherhood are jointly sponsoring a breakfast/workshop to honor the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

10:00 a.m. – Registration and breakfast
Note: Participants should be seated by 10:30 a.m. when the program will begin.

Facilitated by Molly Amster, Baltimore Director of Jews United for Justice
