About The Event

Join North Carolina’s Reform Jewish Congregations as we worship and learn together. The service will feature Eric Ward, a civil rights leader and national expert on the relationship between hate violence and preserving democratic institutions, governance, and inclusive societies. He’ll share how antisemitism forms the theoretical core of white nationalism, driving racism, anti-immigrant bias, and other forms of minority hate.

Eric K. Ward is a nationally-recognized expert on the relationship between authoritarian movements, hate violence, and preserving inclusive democracy. In his 30+ year civil rights career, he has worked with community groups, government and business leaders, human rights advocates, and philanthropy as an organizer, director, program officer, consultant, and board member. The recipient of the Peabody-Facebook Futures Media Award, Eric’s widely quoted writings, and speeches are credited with key narrative shifts. He currently serves as Executive Director of Western States Center, Senior Fellow with Southern Poverty Law Center and Race Forward, and Co-Chair for The Proteus Fund.
