Building Bridges, Becoming Allies Offers Meaningful Stories on What It Means to Be an Ally

  • September 22, 2020

ADL Southwest’s Zoom presentation, Building Bridges, Becoming Allies, featured a diverse panel of four Houston-area residents who told stories of when they or their communities were targeted by hate, and how allies helped them cope.  Attendees heard from Dr. Mark Goldberg, Director of Jewish Studies and Associate Professor of History at the University of Houston, Sarah Haider, Assistant Director Chapter Management of the Sisterhood of Salaam Shalom, Desm0nd Bertrand-Pitts, Chief Executive Officer of the Center for African American Military History doing business as the Buffalo Soldiers National Museum,, and H.C. Chang, President of the Organization of Chinese Americans-Greater Houston.  Their poignant stories of being targeted themselves, having family members or members of their community targeted, and how friends and allies came to their aid and supported them provided meaningful lessons for all who attended.
