The Charlotte Black/Jewish Alliance is a coalition of Jewish and Black young leaders ages 25 to 40, dedicated to cultivating understanding and authentic relationships through honest conversations, deep reflection, and community engagement.
The 18-month program includes:
Meaningful Conversations – Build friendships with other young professionals while discussing significant topics.
Inspiring Journeys – Travel to historic sites and world-class museums to deepen understanding. We will open the program with a daylong Charlotte pilgrimage (as we do not have travel far to learn about our country’s Black and Jewish history). In the spring, we go on a four-day Deep South Pilgrimage, visiting important sites in Atlanta, Birmingham, Montgomery, and Selma.
Engaging Programs – Monthly meetings with engaging programs designed to help participants question, learn, and grow.
Long-lasting Connections – We have an alumni network to support the ongoing friendships and intersectional work of advancing justice.
We are now accepting applications to be part of our 2022-2023 Cohort. The application deadline is September 30.
