The Change-Making Power Of Community
July 17, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm$18
THIS EVENT IS OPEN EXCLUSIVELY TO YOUNG JEWISH PROFESSIONALS IN PHOENIX
We have been inundated recently with stories about how “echo chambers” hurt political discourse and make it harder to affect positive change. But what if there was more to the story? In this session, Elad will explore the incredible power communities (both online and offline) have to create change, and how these “echo chambers” can actually be used to amplify a cause to the outside world in a way no individual could on their own.
Elad Nehorai is the writer behind the blog Pop Chassid, the co-founder of the creative Jewish website Hevria, and one of the leaders of Torah Trumps Hate, a new Orthodox Jewish activist organization and community. He is a columnist for The Forward, and has also been published in The Guardian, Haaretz, and more. His work has been viewed by over 10 million people, and has been discussed in places like ABC World News, Mashable, Yahoo, the New York Daily News, Tablet, and more.
