Antisemitism and anti-Asian racism is rising after staying underground for decades. How bad is it? How are we feeling the effects? How are our youth experiencing it? High school and college students from our communities will share the challenges they are experiencing. Speakers from The Jewish Community Relations Council and Stop AAPI Hate will report on the work they are doing to fight racism.


Presentations will be followed by Q&A. Refreshments will be served, seating is limited.
