Antisemitism in the U.S. isn’t just about overt discrimination or violent assault. It operates in daily life through stereotypes, unspoken assumptions, and ignorance of intersectional identities. Like racism, transphobia, and other forms of systemic oppression, antisemitism affects everyone, even if they’re not part of the targeted group. So what can we do?
The Queer/Trans Caucus of Jewish Voice for Peace-Chicago will hold an interactive training on Monday, February 11, from 6 to 7:30 pm in the Loop. (The exact location will be sent when
you RSVP.) The training will focus on individual and community experiences, especially the impact of antisemitism on Jews of color, LGBTQIA people, immigrants and refugees, and non-
Ashkenazi Jews. We’ll also discuss ways of responding to different kinds of expression, from unexamined stereotypes to open attacks and provide resources for you to use.
The training space is on the first floor and wheelchair accessible. ASL interpreters and other accommodations are available on request.
