Listen. Learn. Create: A Series on Race & Relationships; Session 1

September 14, 2020 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington presents Listen Learn Create A Series on Race and Relationships blue Banner

You’ve read the headlines about racial inequity; you’ve heard the outcry about injustice in our nation. Now, The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington invites you to hear from the Reverend Tim Warner, Pastor of the Emory Grove United Methodist Church, his daughter Jordan Warner-Graham, and his godchildren Joia Daniels and Dr. Joseph Daniels, III about their experiences as a Black family in America.

Join us to listen and learn from two generations of Black spiritual leaders, educators, and activists. Together, we will strengthen our understanding, deepen the roots of our relationships, and reflect on how the Jewish community can realize our vision of being true friends and allies.

Monday, September 14
7:30 PM – 9:00 PM

This is part one of a three-part series presented by Federation’s Women’s Philanthropy. More details coming soon.
