Mayor Greg Fischer and Mayor Francis X. Suarez

Mayors United: A Conversation on Combating Antisemitism and Bigotry

Since American Jewish Committee (AJC) launched the Mayors United Against Antisemitism initiative together with the U.S. Conference of Mayors (USCM) in late January, hundreds of mayors across the United States have signed the statement declaring unequivocally that antisemitism is incompatible with the democratic values that are at the very bedrock of our society. Join USCM President Mayor Greg Fischer of Louisville, Kentucky, and Mayor Francis X. Suarez of Miami, Florida for a bipartisan discussion on the impact of this powerful partnership in the fight against antisemitism and bigotry.

Religion: Cause or Cure for America’s Divides? A Conversation with Eboo Patel

Despite waning religious affiliation, faith continues to influence the culture and character of American society. Extremist Christian nationalism has fueled seditious violence, antisemitism, and other forms of hate. And yet, each day, religious leaders, both progressive and conservative, work to overcome the dangers of tribalism on the left and the right. Muslim-Jewish Advisory Council (MJAC) member Dr. Eboo Patel, the founder and president of Interfaith Youth Core, joins us to discuss how faith communities can champion good and oppose evil, and assure that America’s diversity is not a liability, but rather, an asset.
