Beyond Welcoming: Addressing Racism, Transphobia, Ableism, & More in our Communities (REDI 101)


You are invited to attend Beyond Welcoming: Addressing Racism, Transphobia, Ableism, & More in our Communities (REDI 101), brought to you by the Union for Reform Judaism’s Racial Equity Diversity & Inclusion (REDI) team.

This session will help participants start building stronger communities and transform the ways in which we can create meaningful Jewish experiences for people of all backgrounds. Note: This will be a level-setting REDI session, which will provide information and resources to learn more about REDI practices that you can incorporate into your communities. Our co-facilitators for this session will be Yolanda Savage-Narva (she/her) and Rachel Hall (she/her).

We encourage you to share this registration far and wide with your networks, as the information shared in this training is applicable in all spaces and communities.

Additionally, we may break out into small race-based affinity spaces during the trainings. To organize those spaces, we are asking you to self-identify in the registration as either a Person of Color (this includes people who are mixed race, multiracial, biracial, and hold multiple identities [ex, White and Black, Black and Southeast Asian, etc.]), or as white.

We realize People of Color “POC” are not a monolith and that that term isn’t always a useful word to describe oneself. We also realize not all POC identify as People of Color, and that not all POC use that term. That being said, the organizers of this call/Leaders of Color who are facilitating settled on this language (learn more about race-based affinity spaces here).

Once you complete the registration, you will receive a confirmation e-mail including the Zoom link. This is a 90-minute live session and with the goal of creating a brave and vulnerable space and will not brecorded.  If you have any questions, please contact  Aliza Greenberg at
