With the 70th anniversary of the Nakba coming up on May 15th, we're working hard to be sure our community shows up to support the everyday struggle of Palestinians from Gaza to the diaspora. We need you with us!
On May 7th, our intergenerational curriculum team is hosting our first Safety through Solidarity: JVP Deadly Exchange Teach-In at Kehilla Community Synagogue which will move participants through experiential learning exercises, chevruta (partner)-sharing, and community building as we interrogate our relationships with police and growing alternatives. Join us there at 6PM!
On May 8th, the Arab Resource & Organizing Center (AROC) has asked for our support as they fight for youth programming in SF schools. It's been 3 years and their MOU still hasn't been re-approved - let's be sure SF hears that we won't tolerate their Islamophobia and racism. Join us at the next SF Board of Education meeting - Tuesday, May 8th 6:30PM - 555 Franklin St, SF and see here to call and email Board of Ed Supervisors and the Superintendent.
