Anti-Semitism programming planning committee interest

In the next few months, Diversity Training & Education in the Office of Diversity & Inclusion will launch a programming series to address anti-Semitism through the lens of anti-racism. The series would involve 4 programs (one in Fall and three in Spring semester), which would focus generally on the following broad themes:
* Histories of anti-Semitism and resistance
* Understanding anti-Semitism intersectionally
* Unpacking anti-Semitism vs. anti-Israel - how to view this through an anti-racist lens
*Jewish narratives on UMD’s campus
 
Our next steps are to assemble a small planning committee of students, staff, faculty, and alumni, who serve or who are a part of the Jewish community at UMD, to collaboratively shape and execute this programming.

The first planning committee meeting is Oct 20th, 12pm - 1pm. This initial meeting would serve as a space to bring folks together and share feedback about how this programming might best serve our campus.
