LGBTQ n' Z: Pride, Zionism, & Inclusivity

 

As many of us have observed over the past several months, it has become increasingly difficult for supporters of Israel to feel welcome and embraced in LGBTQ, progressive, and social justice circles.

Join the World Jewish Congress and A Wider Bridge for "LGBTQ n' Z: A Conversation About Pride, Zionism, and Inclusivity," featuring Matt Nosanchuk, former White House liaison to the American Jewish community and on international issues under President Obama, and a panel discussion on the experiences of LGBTQ supporters of Israel with A Wider Bridge's very own Deputy Director, Tye Gregory, former AWB Intern and campus activist Nadiya Al-Noor, and Assaf Weiss, a former Senior Advisor to Israel's Minister of Health and a member of the World Jewish Congress-Jewish Diplomatic Corps. The panel will be moderated by Mark Joseph Stern, a thought leader and writer with Slate.
