This free workshop explores the role that antisemitism played at the 2017 Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville as a case study in contemporary antisemitism. Since there is limited space, the workshop is for current educators only.

How and why does antisemitism persist in communities today? What can we do as educators to confront hatred in our schools and communities? Facing History’s new lessons explore the role that antisemitism played at the 2017 Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville and provide strategies and resources for discussing controversial issues with students that are especially urgent at this historical moment.

In this workshop, we will examine American antisemitism in an historical context by exploring primary sources from the twentieth century. We will also discuss the community responses to these events and how students can choose to participate in strengthening their communities when faced with violations based on hatred or bigotry.

Since there is limited space, the workshop is for current educators only. When RSVPing, please let us know what school you work at and what grade you teach.
