Anti-Racism Resources

Black Lives Matter

At the Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan, we are grieving the tragic murders of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, Daunte Wright, Adam Toledo, and countless others. We stand with the Black community, with Jews of color, with communities of color, within and beyond our JCC community against all forms of hatred and oppression—and specifically against anti-Black racism.

The murder of George Floyd did not happen in a vacuum. We all have an important role to play in dismantling racism, white supremacy, transphobia, homophobia, and xenophobia. Silence is complicity—we are called to take action, speak up, practice our values in our work and policies, and educate ourselves.

We have curated a list of resources below for anyone looking to deepen their understanding and begin to take action. This is by no means a comprehensive list, and we encourage you to continue learning. It’s critical that we all listen to new perspectives and challenge our own understandings of the world we live in. We hope you’ll join us.
