Series I: From Discrimination to Deportation

Presented by the JFCS Holocaust Center and ADL

This series will introduce anti-bias lessons to stop the escalation of hate in our community and discuss the historical significance of lists used for discrimination, deportation, and extermination, both past and present. The workshops will provide a safe space to ask questions about recent antisemitic incidents locally in Marin County and around the world. Together we will explore the impact that bias has on individuals and communities.
