December 10, 2020 2020 US Elections Aftermath: A Social Justice Policy Summit

Pro-Tip: Antiracist Allyship

In the struggle against racism, xenophobia, and intolerance, we should avoid false divisions such as white people versus black people, Jews versus Muslims, and minority groups versus the majority population. Rather, all should work together to root out anti-black racism, anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, xenophobia, and other forms of bigotry. Any group experience with discrimination sets a negative precedent and threatens equality for everyone. This panel explores best practices for individuals, communities, and institutions to serve as effective allies.
