Stories of Exclusion, Stories of Change: Jews of Color Speak about Moving from Welcoming to Belonging
Dec 6 @ 12:30 pm – 2:00 pm


Welcome to our four-part racial justice series, Amplifying Voices.

As we seek to move ourselves both individually and collectively from non-racist to anti-racist beliefs and actions, we are witnessing a moment in history with the possibility for true change. Amplifying Voices marries internal t’shuva, personal pattern breaking, growth, and reckoning with a series of programs by artists and thought leaders inside and outside the Jewish community who will help us reflect on race, religion, and identity.  We invite everyone, both Jewish and non-Jewish, into authentic and meaningful conversation designed to move the needle on how we all engage in the world with sensitivity and compassion.

The first event in our series is Stories of Exclusion, Stories of Change: Jews of Color Speak about Moving from Welcoming to Belonging. Panelists April Baskin, Gamal Palmer, and Evan Traylor will be in discussion moderated by Candace Manriquez Wrenn about their experiences as Jews of Color and sharing strategies to combat racism and anti-Semitism.

Ticket sales will close 24 hours before the event begins. Once you have purchased your ticket, you will receive a one time non-shareable link to the Zoom conversation a few days before the event.

This program is brought to you in partnership with the Tucson Jewish Community Center

Art as a Form of Oppression: Changing Our Institutions from Within

Welcome to our four-part racial justice series, Amplifying Voices.

As we seek to move ourselves both individually and collectively from non-racist to anti-racist beliefs and actions, we are witnessing a moment in history with the possibility for true change. Amplifying Voices marries internal t’shuva, personal pattern breaking, growth, and reckoning with a series of programs by artists and thought leaders inside and outside the Jewish community who will help us reflect on race, religion, and identity.  We invite everyone, both Jewish and non-Jewish, into authentic and meaningful conversation designed to move the needle on how we all engage in the world with sensitivity and compassion.

The second event in our series is Art as a Form of Oppression: Changing Our Institutions from Within. Join us for a conversation with Archy LaSalle, a Black-Jewish educator and fine art photographer in Boston who has put together a grassroots organization to address the lack of representation of Black and Brown artists in the permanent collections of our art museums.

After hearing about Mr. LaSalle’s efforts to make fine art institutions more inclusive, we will have the opportunity to view some of his original photographs.

Ticket sales will close 24 hours before the event begins. Once you have purchased your ticket, you will receive a one time non-shareable link to the Zoom conversation a few days before the event.

This program is brought to you in partnership with the Capital Jewish Museum and the Boulder JCC.
