B) Power, Oppression and Privelage 101: The Building Blocks of Injustice Part 2

In “Power, Oppression and Privilege 101” we will discuss how systems of oppression play out in our society, with a focus on racial and economic injustice and anti-Jewish oppression. We will discuss systems of oppression in a broad sense and then look at how they have functioned in different historical moments. We'll make connections to our own lives, and finally we will think about how organizing gives Jews of Color powerful agency to collectively confront oppression on all levels.
