Indigenous Actions

As non-Native Jews living on indigenous lands in the South Bay, we’re looking for ways to do right by the Indigenous people. See ways to get informed and involved. More info

 

CA Ethnic Studies Advocacy
Special interest groups are trying to exploit CA’s new Ethnic Studies requirement as a platform to infuse anti-Semitism/anti-Zionism into our public schools.  Become informed about the issue, so you can join the efforts to prevent Jewish hate to be woven into a well-intended idea of teaching our students about marginalized communities.
