Understanding how anti-Semitism, anti-Black racism, and xenophobia are connected is critical for our movements to win a future where all of us are safe and free—each are tools used by those who manufacture fear and division to hold onto power. This training will provide insightful analysis and deeply researched messaging tools to help activists and campaigners respond to the increase in anti-Semitism in this country in ways that build our collective safety. How we talk about anti-Semitism is critical—it shapes how we understand it, how we fight it, and how we stop its use for political gain. We’ll share tools for progressives to act in ways that promote solidarity, strengthen our movements, and stay united against bad faith attacks.
