Together Against Hate
The Jewish Community Alliance and First Coast YMCA are proud to announce a new partnership to take an active role in educating and inspiring our neighbors to build a more inclusive Northeast Florida.
Together Against Hate: Promoting Unity in Our Community is a speaker series that will address topics impacting our area including prejudices in faith, race, antisemitism, ethnicity, LGBTQ+, gender, and diverse abilities. Starting in September, influential speakers from 904Ward, JASMYN, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), The Arc Jacksonville, The LJD Jewish Family & Community Services, OneJax, and Interfaith Center, will empower our neighbors with the knowledge needed to have a voice in taking a stance against bias.
As a visual representation of our partnership and the efforts made to unify our community, our series will culminate with the first-ever Racing Against Hate 5K Run/Walk at the Winston Family YMCA on Sunday, February 25, 2024, at 1 pm.
Please reference our Together Against Hate speaker schedule below and mark your community calendars to join us as we inspire our neighbors to create a safe and welcoming community. Our educational speaker series begins on Thursday, September 14 and continues through January 2024.
Speaker Series Events:
Together Against Hate is made possible by funding from CSX, the Jewish Federation & Foundation of Northeast Florida: Next Gen B’nai Tzedek Grant Award, and the Team Up Project: a national collaboration between Catholic Charities USA, Habitat for Humanity International, Interfaith America and YMCA of the USA.
