How can we turn moments into movements? How do we build on our successes?

Join leaders of the Brooklyn Liberation March, Raquel Willis and Eliel Cruz, and Rabbi Samantha Frank as we break down the art of storytelling and make connections to the ever-relevant themes of Purim.

On Purim, we celebrate the actions of courageous heroes — and their leadership that inspired community support — that saved the Jewish people from destruction. This Jewish holiday helps us see that each of us has the power to make a significant difference in the world.

The Brooklyn Liberation March was an action demanding justice for Black Trans lives cut short by police brutality and civilian violence. Over 15,000 people attended to rally in support of, demand justice for, and celebrate. You can read more about the demonstration here and on their landing page.

All are welcome to this celebration of courage, defiance, and collective action.
