How are charges of antisemitism being weaponized to specifically target powerful Black and Muslim leaders, force Jews and Jewish allies into false dichotomies, divert attention from the worldwide rise of white nationalism and state violence, and divide progressive movement-building?
Who benefits? Who is harmed? And most importantly, what can we do to recognize and disarm these attempts to divide us?
Please join us 7-10 pm Thursday, May 2 at The Summit on Pike (420 E Pike St, Seattle) for this intersectional community dialogue to unpack the underlying dynamics of anti-Black racism, Islamophobia, patriarchy, and the conflation of Judaism and Israel, that are fueling the weaponization of charges of purported antisemitism.
Speakers: Rabbi David Basior, Kadima Reconstructionist Community; Rev. Dr. Kelle Brown, Lead Pastor, Plymouth Congregational Church; Aneelah Afzali, Esq., Executive Director, MAPS-AMEN (Muslim Association of Puget Sound —American Muslim Empowerment Network)
Moderator: Maya Berkowitz
