Excerpt from page 3 of the guide for Jewish human rights activists

“Where, after all, do universal human rights begin? In small places, close to home“- Eleanor Roosevelt

These words are a powerful jumping off point to launch our exciting new resource, in collaboration with Stop Funding Hate. This guide outlines how Jewish voices can play a unique role in tackling discrimination against all groups and communities, from migrants to Travellers.

It contains practical tools for integrating Jewish values with activism, calling out discrimination online, having difficult conversations with family, and even building a campaign you care about.

Where can I find the guide?

The full guide is available as a PDF here

Throughout May, you will find us posting snippets of the guide on our social media
