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.
The series includes workshops and performances led by:
- April Baskin (Joyous Justice)
- Ilana Kaufman (Jews of Color Field Building Initiative)
- Gamal Palmer (Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles)
- Evan Traylor (Hebrew Union College)
- Candace Manriquez Wrenn (NPR’s Marketplace)
- Tamar Manasseh (Mothers Against Senseless Killings Chicago)
- T. Marie King and Samantha Dubrinksy (Birmingham Civil Rights Institute)
- Afro-Semitic Experience
- Marc Dollinger (Author of Black Power, Jewish Politics)
- Gil Ribak (University of Arizona)
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.
Each session of Amplifying Voices is offered with a suggested cost of $12 for members or $18 for the public. Zoom links will be emailed 36 hours in advance of each event.
