“Embracing Our Diversity: Coming Together Against Bias,” a virtual community dialogue moderated by Nancy Kranich of Rutgers University, will be held on Thursday, Oct. 29, from 7:30 to 9 p.m.
The public is invited to watch the program and submit questions and comments on Facebook Live on the East Brunswick Public Library’s Facebook page, or watch it on the library’s website, ebpl.org. Closed captioning will be sponsored by the Friends of the East Brunswick Public Library.
The program, co-sponsored by East Brunswick Hadassah, EBPL, and the East Brunswick Human Relations Council, aims to initiate a dialogue among the township’s diverse communities and generate ideas for embracing diversity, building bridges, and combating bias.
East Brunswick’s Mayor Brad J. Cohen will deliver a welcome. Dan Rozett, the manager of community and Israel engagement for the Jewish Federation in the Heart of New Jersey, is among the panelists. He is a native of Middlesex County and a graduate of local Jewish day schools. After living in Israel for 20 years, he returned to the United States in 2015 and now lives in East Brunswick. He chose Jewish communal work to serve the Jewish community, share his love for Israel, and connect as many people in the heart of N.J. to Jewish causes and the Jewish homeland. He will be joined by Neven Abdo, the Rev. Khristi Lauren Adams, Neha Avadhani, Susanna Chiu, Kamlu Gulrajani, and Erum Shakir.
