Project Understanding, a signature achievement of the Atlanta Black-Jewish Coalition, ensures that relationships between thought leaders and decision makers who identify as Black and/or Jewish continue to expand into Atlanta’s next generation.

We are thrilled to announce the inaugural 2021 Project Understanding Initiative for Teens.

This program is open to high school juniors and seniors who live in Metro Atlanta and identify as Black and/or Jewish.

Applications are now closed. 

Sessions will focus on the history of Black-Jewish relations, racism and antisemitism (hatred of Jews), diversity within the Black and Jewish communities, how to utilize relationship building in advocacy, and more.

The program will take place twice a month from January to April, 2021. All sessions will be virtual. Admission to the program is highly competitive, as capacity is limited. 


Session Dates*:
All sessions will be held from 7:15-8:30pm.
