  • American Jewish Committee (AJC) Los Angeles had the pleasure of hosting Debbie to speak at our annual meeting for our young professional’s network, ACCESS. The program focused on addressing antisemitism in a digital age. With antisemitism increasing across the world in various manifestations, we felt Debbie was the perfect representative of the online Jewish advocacy community.

     

    The program included a moderated discussion with Debbie followed by a Q&A with the audience. She could not have been received with more enthusiasm. She discussed her experience with online advocacy with incredible eloquence and tact. It is challenging to address growing concerns of antisemitism without causing alarm, but Debbie did so in a way that left the audience inspired to engage with Jewish advocacy online and beyond.
