Let's Talk Series: Antisemitism is Everyone's Concern
Presentation by Cherie R. Brown, Founder & CEO, National Coalition Building Institute (NCBI)
What is antisemitism, and why is it everyone's concern?
Why is antisemitism so confusing and difficult to understand or talk about?
This presentation offers a working definition of antisemitism. It explains how Antisemitism is used to divide groups from each other and how it hurts everyone—Jews and non-Jews alike. It describes why antisemitism is particularly harmful to working-class people and how it is used to shield those who profit from an unfair system. And it concludes with action steps that Jews and allies can take to eliminate antisemitism.
