We are proud to highlight Monday's ACCESS AJC Atlanta and Atlanta Black-Jewish Coalition event in partnership with the Center for Civil and Human Rights, where 100 people heard how to use historic civil rights movements as templates for change today. Thank you to all those who attended. We hope you found the event insightful and inspiring. Special thanks to our panelists Xernona Clayton, Rabbi Joshua Lesser, Tereance R. Puryear, Erin Schrode and moderator Sherry Frank for your insights on enacting change. Finally, a shout out to our co-chairs, Jeff Fisher, Brandon Goldberg and Jessie Brenner for orchestrating a fantastic evening.

Last week, AJC represented the Jewish community in the presentation of House Resolution 320: Genocide Prevention and Awareness to the Georgia House of Representatives.
