Starting With Ourselves: A Jewish Open Space for Anti-Racism

This gathering will be a supportive space to explore experiences and assumptions in the service of ending racism. Come ready to engage in thoughtful and thought-provoking conversations.

"Uprooting Racism" Book Signing by Author Paul Kivel

Kehilla Community Synagogue

Completely revised and updated, this 4th edition of Uprooting Racism offers a framework around neoliberalism and interpersonal, institutional, and cultural racism, along with stories of resistance and white solidarity. It providers practical tools and advice on how white people can work as allies for racial justice, directly engaging the reader through questions, exercises, and suggestions for action. Previous editions of Uprooting Racism have sold more than 50,000 copies because it is accessible, personal, supportive and practical – ideal for students, community activists, teachers, youth workers and anyone interested in issues of diversity, multiculturalism and social justice.

Paul Kivel, social justice educator, activist, and writer, has been an innovative leader in violence prevention for more than 45 years. He is an accomplished trainer and speaker on men’s issues, racism and diversity, challenges of youth, teen dating and family violence, raising boys to manhood, and the impact of class and power on daily life. Paul has developed highly effective participatory and interactive methodologies for training youth and adults in a variety of settings. His work gives people the understanding to become involved in social justice work and the tools to become more effective allies in community struggles to end oppression and injustice and to transform organizations and institutions.

Bay Area Make It Fair Town Hall

First Congregational Church of Oakland (United Church of Christ)
2501 Harrison St
94612 Oakland , CA

Exceptional schools, health care for all, affordable homes, open libraries, clean parks, and thriving small businesses. That’s our vision of California’s future. Instead, cities all throughout the state are declaring a state of fiscal emergency and cutting services left and right. All while, big corporations and the very wealthy use tax loopholes to cheat our communities out of billions.
