Join us for this timely series of virtual workshops for parents, students, educators, administrators, and community members. Led by the JFCS Holocaust Center in partnership with the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), Beyond Differences, Facing History & Ourselves, and the Marin County Office of Education.
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.
January – February 2021
This series will explore heroic individuals who stood up to Nazi discrimination during the Holocaust. These “upstanders” serve as an inspiration for our community. Holocaust survivors will join via zoom as guest faculty to inspire the participants with their first hand experiences.
March – April 2021
Each year, April is recognized as Genocide Awareness Month. Series III will inspire the community to recognize the patterns of genocide. Opportunities for community commemoration and peer education will be provided. Resources for this series will include survivor testimony.
Join us for a community gathering to discuss and evaluate a year of learning together. Families, students, teachers, administrators, and community members are invited to join this discussion.
