Showing Up For Black People in White Spaces

RSVP Here: https://form.jotform.com/201744226491150?utm_source=Hillel.org%20Navigation&utm_medium=Website&utm_campaign=Hillel%20at%20Home

Co-sponsored by Hillel at Stanford Univeristy.

Julie Lythcott-Haims, writer, author, human, will share with Hillel students and their families her experience as a Black and biracial woman growing up in white spaces. She found that even as she accomplished so much—graduating from Stanford University and Harvard Law School, working as a corporate lawyer and as Stanford’s first-ever dean of freshmen—she still couldn’t escape the grip racism, discrimination, and microaggressions had on her sense of self.

Julie is married to a white Jewish man and has been immersed in the top echelons of college life.  She’s authored How to Raise an Adult, Real American and is now writing Your Turn: How to Be An Adult, for 18- to 35-year-olds. She understands the worlds and stages many of us are living in and is here to share her experiences with us in a way that will help us understand and grow. Join us to hear about Julie’s experience, and get the guidance so many of us are looking for in this moment on how we as allies can better show up, listen, and advocate for Black lives.

Students and professionals who are Jews of Color, are also invited to an intmitate conversation with Julie Lythcott-Haims at 7:30pm.
