Speakers include:

  • Sam Stein, author of Capital City: Gentrification & the Real Estate State
  • Sasha Wijeyeratne, Executive Director of CAAAV: Organizing Asian Communities
  • Bianca Cunningham, Union Organizer & Popular Educator, co-chair of NYC Democratic Socialists of America

Understanding Anti-Semitism, Visualizing Antisemitism

Join us for an evening of art, learning, and organizing for a premier look at a new tool we will be sharing with our community and movement this year—an artistic poster presentation of our antisemitism guide, which has played a key role in our city, nationally, and beyond. In this moment, it is more clear than ever that we need to keep growing the accessibility and reach of our left analysis of antisemitism, for Jews, for our movements, for our democracy.
