Anti-Semitism and the Intersections of Anti-Semitism with Racism


Thursday, February 13, 2020

College Center 223-Multi Purpose Room

The issue of anti-Semitism is continually being weaponized to confuse everyone. This is a workshop to learn more about how anti-Semitism functions, when something is or isn’t anti-Semitism, and how anti-Semitism intersects with racism to divide all progressive movement work. We will learn how to keep anti-Semitism from dividing progressive work on many issues. Note: This is a workshop for personal work and sharing. Come wanting to do your own personal work on these issues. We will prioritize student participation.

Sponsored by Religious & Spiritual LIfe & Contemplative Practices, the ALANA Center, the Bias Incident Response Team (BIRT), and the Dean of the College.

Please register at *Participation is limited to the Vassar community.
