Strategies for fighting anti-Semitism in the United States
Tuesday, January 26, 2021
1 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. PT
What does anti-Semitism mean in the U.S. today? How does Israel fit in? What is the impact of Trump’s enabling of white nationalism? And what strategies should the Biden administration employ to counter anti-Semitism?
Join USC Annenberg for a conversation surrounding these questions and more as we define anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism.
