Build Civic Power at Strong City Baltimore’s 12th Neighborhood Institute

Strong City Baltimore is postponing Neighborhood Institute 2020, originally scheduled for March 28th at Baltimore City Community College, in accordance with the mandates from state and city leadership about cancelling large-scale events due to public health concerns over the spread of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). The annual skill-building conference for neighborhood leaders will be rescheduled to fall 2020.

Neighborhood Institute, Strong City Baltimore’s annual skill-building conference for neighborhood leaders, activists, and nonprofit professionals, returns with a day of learning that reflects these extraordinary times for our city and nation. With election season in full swing and the Census count kicking into high gear, Strong City is joining forces with other local organizations to focus Neighborhood Institute’s content on the theme “Building Civic Power.”

0

UPDATE: Out of an abundance of caution, the Annual Dahan Lecture, “Anti-Semitism: Here and Now with Dr. Deborah Lipstadt,” is being postponed. A new date will be announced shortly.

There been a noticeable uptick in anti-Semitic incidents in America. Where is all this hatred coming from? Is there any significant difference between left-wing and right-wing anti-Semitism? What role has the anti-Zionist movement played?

Dr. Deborah E. Lipstadt, Dorot professor of Holocaust studies at Emory University in Atlanta and renowned author, will give her own brilliantly argued, and certain to be controversial, responses to these troubling questions at Beth Tfiloh Congregation’s Annual Dahan Lecture on Thursday, March 19 at 7 PM.

Dr. Lipstadt has published and taught about the Holocaust for close to 40 years. Her books include “Denying the Holocaust” (1993), “History on Trial: My Day in Court with a Holocaust Denier” (2005), “The Eichmann Trial” (2011), and “Antisemitism: Here and Now” (2019).

This event is free and open to the public; no registration needed. Dr. Lipstadt’s book will be available for purchase following the lecture.
