Jewish Community Center of Washington, DC

Understanding White Privilege and Anti-Racism
Location: Virtual

The work of becoming anti-racist is never complete and a life-long learning process. Whether you've been involved in anti-racism work before or this may be your first exploration of internal biases and how white supremacy is infused into our daily lives, we hope you will join us.

This workshop will explore the ways that white supremacy culture shows up through various levels of society; internally, inter-personally, institutionally, and systemically. By examining and questioning whiteness we will begin to develop an understanding of what an active anti-racist practice can be.

About the facilitator: Yael Horowitz is a white, queer, Jewish organizer, educator and artist. She has been a Jewish educator for over 6 years as well as the director of a summer camp. She developed the curriculum and ran the Bonimot Tzedek (Building Justice) Jewish social justice program for Montgomery County teens.
