Thank you for your interest in applying to Sankofa Tzedek: An exploration of community, solidarity and justice.

Through friendship-building; sustained dialogue on social identity, power and privilege, and activism; and an exploration of the histories of Black and Jewish communities in New York City and beyond, participants will build transformational relationships; solidify a commitment to intercommunity solidarity for the purpose of ending racism, anti-Semitism, and all forms of oppression; and acquire skills for being effective dialogue leaders on campus.
