Pride Shabbat 2022June 17, with guest speaker Rachel Tiven
TBA will celebrate Pride Month with Pride Shabbat on June 17, 2022.
Guest speaker Rachel B. Tiven will join us to talk about the Jewish Heroes of the LGBT Rights Movement.
Rachel B. Tiven is a civil rights leader turned historian. While serving as the head of national non-profits Lambda Legal, Immigration Equality, and Immigrant Justice Corps, Tiven fought for equality for immigrants and LGBTQ people. She later managed the voter protection hotline for Stacey Abrams’ 2018 gubernatorial campaign, which built the infrastructure that enabled Georgia’s historic 2020 election.
While a practitioner-in-residence at Columbia Law School, Tiven merged her work on voting rights today with voting rights struggles of the past, writing an acclaimed social media project called The Daily Suffragist. In addition to the website, it can be found on social media as @DailySuffragist. She is now working on her Ph.D. at CUNY Graduate Center.
More details to come as we get closer to the event.
