Strength in Unity: Challenging Anti-Asian and Antisemitic Hate

About the Event

In the vibrant heart of Queens, amidst the bustling diversity that defines our borough, we are rising against the tide of hate targeting our Asian and Jewish communities. Join us for a special event that transcends boundaries, bringing together government officials, AAPI and Jewish leaders, and captivating performers for an unforgettable evening of solidarity and action.

Presented by American Jewish CommitteeCommittee of 100, and the Queens Jewish Community Council, in dynamic collaboration with the NYC Office for the Prevention of Hate Crimes and JCRC-NY, this event is not just a moment, but a movement. We’re igniting candid conversations and fostering enduring partnerships to combat hate head-on.

Be inspired by influential speakers and a thought-provoking conversation moderated by Shawn Ma, Director of Asian American Affairs, Office of the Governor and Committee of 100 Next Generation Leader ’24, and immerse yourself in the rhythm of unity with a special performance by celebrated Jewish rapper Kosha Dillz! More to be announced!

Together, let’s commit to ongoing dialogue, collaborative initiatives, and unwavering resilience as we pave the way for a brighter, more inclusive future grounded in respect, dignity, and compassion. Join us in this pivotal moment as we stand tall, speak louder, and forge alliances that will shape the narrative of Queens and beyond. Together, we are stronger, and together, we will build a community where hate has no place.
