Building Bridges: LGBTQ+ Intersectionality

This event is no longer on sale.

Thursday June 16

5:00 PM  –  6:00 PM


Building Bridges is a monthly cross-cultural discussion series that brings together leaders from diverse communities for conversations about working toward common social justice goals. Dan Schnur, Holocaust Museum LA board member and USC and UC Berkeley Professor of Communications, is the moderator. 


Jewish and LGBTQ+ communities were targeted by the Nazis because of who they were. Today, how can we come together and challenge identity-based persecution and come together as a community. As part of this series, and in celebration of Pride Month, the discussion will focus on LGBTQ+ discrimination and the intersection with the Jewish community. Speakers include Senator Scott Wiener and Rabbi Denise L. Eger of Congregation Kol Ami.
