Ep. 3 - Jewish Lives Matter

August 23, 2016

A recent spate of articles in the Jewish media have weighed in on the Black Lives Matter platform's support for BDS, and its accusation that Israel commits genocide.

While Jewish organizations decide how to handle this, Jewish students on campus find themselves in a difficult situation.

How should they understand the idea of intersectionality between various social justice movements? And how do they speak out for social justice causes if fans of BDS want to exclude them for supporting Israel? Alan and Mike discuss these thorny issues.
