An opportunity for dialogue on race, racism and social change.
Given the intention to honor Dr. King, and the racial justice reckoning we are living through, Repair will gather Jewish learners and leaders for a virtual Learn-In. The Learn-In will offer a diverse set of programs with many voices, entry points, and perspectives to deepen our learning about the themes of Dr. King’s life and legacy and move us forward together as a community.

Jewish Racial Justice Literacy 101
January 13, 7:30pm – 8:45 pm ET
We are in the midst of a national conversation about racial justice. Some of us have been talking about this topic for years while others are unsure how to begin. Facilitated by Victoria Raggs, Trinae Watkins and Lily Brent, this event will explore key concepts on race and racism through the lived experiences of Atlanta’s diverse Jewish community. Our facilitators will lead an examination of microaggressions that take place every day in our Jewish institutions and hold space for Jews to engage in a dialogue about race. This event will scratch the surface of a very deep issue, while encouraging people of all experience levels to think about how we join collectively in the movement for equity and inclusion.

Facilitated by Jada Garrett, John Eaves and Pam Sugarman, this event will provide tools for having open and honest conversations. Attendees will participate in a reflective practice on race and racial justice and leave with clear steps they can action on their learning journey. REGISTER TODAY!
