Multiracial democracy in the United States and the freedom to live as American Jews are inextricably linked. Unfortunately, they both hang precariously in the balance. Fueled by antisemitism, racism, and white supremacy, neo-Nazis attacked Charlottesville in August 2017. Five years later, the fight against this violent bigotry continues, with extremism increasingly normalized in our politics and society, from the Supreme Court decision overturning Roe, to attacks on marginalized communities and rising political violence.
Join Amy Spitalnick, executive director of Integrity First for America, which successfully sued the Charlottesville neo-Nazis with Ilyse Hogue, author of bestselling book The Lie That Binds, President of Purpose, former President of NARAL Pro-Choice America, who will uncover and connect the dots between the assault on our democracy and our rights, how we can fight back, and what it means to live as both Americans and Jews.
