Amplifying Voices Series

Amplifying Voices is a six-part virtual series designed to help us explore the intersectional relationship between Black and Jewish identity and community.

The program is designed to create space for Jews of Color to share their experiences as both Jews and Black people, and is available to anyone who would like to learn from an incredible panel of Black Jewish leaders and allies.

Full series lineup:

  • Sun Dec 6 at 10:30 am – Stories of Exclusion, Stories of Change. Panelists April BaskinGamal Palmer and Evan Traylor will be in discussion moderated by Candace Manriquez Wrenn about their experiences as Jews of Color and sharing strategies to combat Racism and Anti-Semitism.

Throughout the series, participants will be encouraged to consider their own prejudices and to begin to construct solutions for bringing about a more just world. The Amplifying Voices series also gives participants space to celebrate what unites us as well as the diversity within our Tucson and global communities.
