White Privilege and the Jewish Community
January 31 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
National Council of Jewish Women (NCJW) Sacramento, in partnership with Congregation B’nai Israel, Congregation Beth Shalom, and the Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC), presents White Privilege and the Jewish Community. This workshop focuses on the societal pervasiveness of white privilege and how it shows up in Jewish communities and institutions. Together, we will gain tools to unlearn and challenge racism within ourselves, our families, and our broader communities.
White privilege refers to advantages accruing to persons simply because they are perceived as White. White is the presumed norm so that any other designation is considered “other” and “less than”. White privilege is invisible to those who have it and usually obvious to those who don’t.
The presenter, Rachel Gottfried-Clancy is the Executive Director of Jewish Youth for Community Action (JYCA), in the East Bay.
RSVP requested by January 28 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
