Anti-racism Mitzvah Project (AMP) Launch Event
Antiracism Mitzvah Project – AMP
Special Launch Event with Kate Schatz!
Wednesday, May 3rd at 7:00 pm
In-person at CHL
Chochmat Halev is launching a racial justice affinity group called The Antiracism Mitzvah Project – AMP! Anyone who is part of the Chochmat Halev community is welcome to join us as we come together to learn about the history of racism in this country, increase our self-awareness, and to take meaningful actions toward racial justice.
We will begin by working together with the book “Do The Work! An Antiracist Activity Book”, W. Kamau Bell and Kate Schatz. This book is a fun and accessible way to make progress on being an antiracist. We’ll also incorporate relevant Jewish teachings and somatic practice.
The group will launch this effort on Wednesday 5/3 from 7:00-9:00pm at Chochmat Halev (in-person only) with special guest and book co-author Kate Schatz! We will continue meeting on the first Wednesdays of the month. Please get the book and join us!
Note: Here are two options for purchasing the book:
- https://www.marcusbooks.com/ Marcus Books in Oakland, our local independent Black owned bookstore. Buying books here supports their mission and is an act of solidarity.
- We will have a book table at the launch where Kate will sell the book at wholesale rates.
This event will be free to attend, but we request a generous donation (suggested $18-$72) to be split between Chochmat HaLev and Kate Schatz.
For indoor events with more than 30 attendees, Chochmat HaLev requires masking which covers both your nose and mouth. N95, KN95, and double surgical are acceptable. Cloth masks of any kind are not acceptable.
CHL will provide passive ventilation (e.g. open windows and doors under the supervision of security-trained personnel) and other equipment as available.
CHL will include specific guidelines for those attending in person events on our website and in announcements regarding events.
