A United Front: Against White Nationalism, Racism, and Antisemitism (featuring Eric Ward)

A United Front: Against White Nationalism, Racism, and Antisemitism (featuring Eric Ward)

** RSVP for Zoom link at bottom of the page**

From the massacre at Emanuel AME Church, South Carolina in 2015, to the 2017 Unite the Right Rally in Charlottesville, to the Tree of Life synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh, to the ongoing fight over Silent Sam at UNC Chapel Hill, to militias in Kenosha, WI and beyond, the influence and rising threat of White Nationalism is undeniable.

Join Temple Beth Or and Carolina Jews For Justice for an in-depth discussion with civil rights leader Eric Ward about the White Nationalist movement, its interlocking threats, and how we build solidarity across different experiences and diverse identities to fight for the safety and freedom that we all deserve.

This program will be on November 12th from 7-8:30pm.

If you haven't already, take a look at Eric Ward's acclaimed article, "Skin in the Game," about how antisemitism is an animating feature of the white nationalist movement.
