Standing Up: Real Stories of Upstanding Against Harm

July 12, 2023 Free


What It Takes; Why Its Crucial — And The Role We All Play In Making Change

Featuring: Dr. Keren R. McGinity, Hannah Dreyfus, Dr. Alissa Ackerman, Dr. Guila Benchimol, and Bonnie Goldberg, LICSW, LCSW, LMSW

  • What happens when women* speak about sexual harm?
  • What can we do to support them?
  • How can our communities grow to support those who call out bad behavior?
  • How can we – as community members – help our institutions respond well when individuals bring forward claims they don’t want to hear?

Join us in conversation with three powerful speakers – Dr. Keren McGinity, Dr. Alissa Ackerman, and Hannah Dreyfus, facilitated by Dr. Guila Benchimol — who will share their personal experiences and perspectives on upstanding and how it reflects their faith and Jewish values, and how it has personally impacted their lives. They will be joined by Bonnie Goldberg of JCADA, a trauma-informed clinician who will offer her expert framing and offer support should anyone need it during the course of our conversation.

Join us on Wednesday, July 12th from 8:00-9:30 pm ET, for this critical communal conversation in partnership with the SRE Network and The Covenant Foundation
