JABA (Jews as Black Allies) is holding its first program on Thursday, May 28th, from 7:00 to 9:00 pm at Nevei Kodesh, 1925 Glenwood Drive.  Our goal is to use this first program as a means of providing basic and intense education on the Black Lives Matter Movement and police brutality, with a focus on our panelists’ individual experiences, and in the context of Michelle Alexander’s “The New Jim Crow.”

Angela Sanders, Black Lives Matter Activist
Dr. Anne Rice Jones, Faith Activist and Educator
