featuring Stephanie Goldfarb, Program Director, Youth Philanthropy and Leadership at the Jewish United Fund, Emily Briskman, Assistant VP/Executive Director, Israel Education Center at Jewish United Fund, and Laurie Grauer, Midwest Manager, A Wider Bridge

Watch this presentation to explore the theory of intersectionality, the BDS movement currently taking place on college campuses, how these two ideas overlap in today's culture climate.


The Roger Baldwin Foundation of the ACLU of Illinois
Reproductive Rights Project


The Roger Baldwin Foundation of the ACLU, a JWF grantee, works to change the laws that put women's health at risk under the guise of religious freedom. Lorie Chaiten, Director of the Reproductive Rights Project of ACLU, met with JWF's Advocacy Committee to discuss how the ACLU's Reproductive Rights Project works to change the laws and ways you can help end this unjust and dangerous practice.

We invite you to watch highlights from her presentation above.
