Controversy at the Dyke March: Jews in Progressive Activism

Wednesday, July 17, 2019, 1:00pm – 2:00pm EDT
Online (Zoom)

Earlier this month, the DC Dyke March became the second such event to ban the Jewish Pride flag. Are Jews becoming unwelcome in social justice spaces because of a perception for their support for Israel—or are "anti-Israel"/"anti-Zionist" beliefs providing cover for antisemitism? How can progressive Jews work effectively in their communities to stand up for their beliefs without being attacked for being Jewish or Zionist? This webinar brings together two progressive, Zionist activists who led the response to the DC Dyke March; a funder; and the President and CEO of Jewish Council of Public Affairs to discuss what happened and what steps funders might take in their own communities to support full inclusion for Jews and prevent such situations.
