International Women’s Day – and Religion!

Dear Friends:

Today is International Women’s Day! Celebrated for over 100 years, this honorary day spotlights achievements of women around the world and recognizes our ongoing need for political, economic and social equality.

Please join in me in honoring women worldwide by reading and sharing two of Tanenbaum’s Combating Extremism resources that highlight the bravery, power and value of women across traditions:

One of the mantras Tanenbaum lives by, is Peace is Possible. Today we add, Equality is Possible!

Never Again – It’s Time We Meant It

January 27th is International Holocaust Remembrance Day, marking the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau from the Nazis 73 years ago. And this year’s theme is “The power of words.”

So, isn’t it time to ask:

How powerful would it be, if we really meant the words, “Never Again”?

View our resource to see how the horrors of the past are repeating today. Together, let’s vow to make Never Again real — we can’t afford not to.

Today is Tanenbaum’s #givebackwednesday!

Download and share our tips for Respectful Communication

Dear Friends,

Yesterday was #givingtuesday. And I’m sure you were bombarded with worthy causes asking for your support. To those of you who gave to make the world a better place—in whatever way you chose to do so—we say thanks.

In honor of what we call #givebackwednesday, I want to share our tips for Respectful Communication. At a time when people are talking about (and worried about) conversations at upcoming holiday dinners, great communication is one of the best gifts you can share—with family, neighbors and colleagues.

Thank you, again, for all you do.

Cheers,

Joyce
