Jews of Color are invited to this workshop developed by Kendra Watkins and Reuben Telushkin to explore our local Detroit history with an eye on race, Jewishness, and Israel/Palestine. This history is often discussed in silos, ignoring those of us at the intersections of these narratives. Together, we'll discuss how we see ourselves in our community's ongoing story and develop a shared understanding of the current Detroit landscape.
This program is in partnership with Edot Midwest.
For the next 2 months of meetings, the Freedom Team and Thriving Team will be combining to engage in a summer of action! The goal of this series is to help Freedom & Thriving Team Members feel comfortable, confident and empowered participating in direct action, protest, and campaign work on their own while representing DJJ.
During these workshops, we will be lifting up the full spectrum of participation in action; giving folks opportunities to engage in actions between monthly meetings as a way to participate lightly and to push ourselves; bringing in speakers, storytellers, and DJJ leaders active in Direct Action; helping us to navigate bringing all of our identities to action spaces, and more!
During our second meeting on Wednesday, July 7th from 6:30-8pm, we will be focusing on Identifying Goals and Tactics. More information to come - RSVP below for the Zoom link, we hope to see you all there!
