As we mourn for George Floyd and the many other victims of racism and hate in America, JCRC-NY, in solidarity with our African American sisters and brothers and all communities of color, has decided to postpone the annual Celebrate Israel Parade. Recognizing and memorializing the historic moment in which we are living, JCRC-NY will convene a virtual Space of Healing and Listening on Sunday, June 7th at 1:00 pm (EDT). This gathering will provide an opportunity for Jews and non-Jews alike to hear messages from prominent African American community leaders in New York, including:
Jennifer Jones Austin, CEO, Federation of Protestant Welfare Associations
Tamara Fish, Co-Founder, Khazbar, Former President, Jewish Multiracial Network
Rev. Charles O. Galbreath, Senior Pastor, Clarendon Road Church
Samuel M. Pierre, MPA, Chief of Staff to New York CIty Council Member Farah Louis
