we look at an issue that affects us all; how internalize oppression prevents us from healing and keeps us from being the best activists we can be. In her new book "Hope Into Practice : Jewish Women Choosing Justice Despite Our Fears," activist, author and teacher Penny Rosenwasser shows how working through internalized oppression, we can link personal healing with social justice—enabling us to fight more effectively to change systems that are immoral and unfair.Penny Rosenwasser takes on the most explosive issues today—racism and anti-Semitism, victimization and privilege, and Jewish politics around Israel and Palestine and makes the crucial point that Jewish liberation is interconnected with the liberation of all oppressed people, whether they are African-American, undocumented immigrants, queer or transgender, homeless, or Palestinian. Join us on KPFA's women's Magazine on Monday October 6th from 1- as we talk with Penny Rosenwasser and find hope thru practice.
