We are honored to host M. Dove Kent and Koach Baruch Frazier for "Practicing Resistance: Jewish Solidarity in Action and Community." With a focus on the role of Jews in movements for justice, this workshop will offer participants skills for organizing our community, training on the intersections of anti-Semitism and racism, and perspective from the national Jewish justice movement.
This intensive workshop is intended for folks who are involved with Detroit Jews for Justice or have attended a DJJ orientation.
Registrants are encouraged to join us before the workshop for a free brunch talk with our trainers, open to all. Additional snacks will be served throughout the day.
Let us know if you'd like to coordinate a carpool (sharing your address below helps!)

As the former executive director of Jews for Racial & Economic Justice (2011 through 2016), Dove supported the organization to triple in size and win game-changing legislative victories for police accountability and worker’s rights through powerful local coalitions. Under Dove’s tenure, JFREJ grew into one of the strongest and most effective progressive Jewish organizations in the country, creating significant culture shifts within the Jewish community, New York and nationally. She has been published in What We Do Now: Standing Up for Your Values in Trump’s America (2017), Towards the “Other America”: Anti-racist Resources for White People Taking Action for Black Lives Matter (2015), in the Guardian, Ha’aretz, Tikkun, and the Forward, among many other media outlets.
