Join the Genesis Prize and 70 Faces Media to explore why it is crucial for Jews to fight for justice and equality. Hear from leaders of three Jewish nonprofits as they discuss why it is crucial for Jews to be part of a multi-faith, multi-racial movement for justice and equality.

Our panel will feature:

  • Rabbi Jonah Dov Pesner, Director, The Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism
  • Ilana Kaufman, Executive Director, Jews of Color Initiative
  • Cheryl Cook, Executive Director, Avodah
  • Moderator: Megan Black, Common Good Program Director, Western States Center

All three of these organizations were funded by 2021 Genesis Prize Laureate Steven Spielberg. Mr. Spielberg re-gifted his $1 million Genesis Prize award to 10 nonprofits working for racial and economic justice in the United States. He and his wife, Kate Capshaw, then matched those grants with an additional $1 million from their foundation.
