Film | In Search of My Sister (2021): Screening and Discussion of Genocide in China (online)


For decades, the Chinese Communist Party has sought to forcibly assimilate the Uyghur Muslim community in Xinjiang (East Turkistan), an autonomous territory in northwest China. The CCP's violent campaign has involved forced sterilization, sexual violence, enslavement, torture, and the establishment of vast concentration camps that call to mind Nazi camps a generation earlier.  This is a program exploring the modern-day genocide occurring in northwest China shortly before China is set to host the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing. The program will feature an exclusive, private screening of In Search of My Sister (80 minutes, English), a new film that tells the story of American Uyghur activist Rushan Abbas. Due to Rushan's public criticism of the CCP, her sister, Dr. Gulshan Abbas, was detained in Chinese camps along with two to three million other Uyghurs. The film chronicles Rushan's journey as she searches for proof that her sister is alive. Following the film, the program will feature a panel discussion with Rushan Abbas; Jawad Mir, the film's director; and Ruth Messinger, Global Ambassador and former President of American Jewish World Service. The exclusive, private film screening and discussion are co-presented by the Jewish Movement for Uyghur Freedom.

In his blazing debut nove, Andrew Lipstein blurs the lines between fact and fiction with a thrilling story of fame, fortune, and impossible choices. Caleb Horowitz is twenty-seven, and his wildest dreams are about to come true. His manuscript has caught the attention of the literary agent, who offers him fame, fortune, and a taste of the literary life. He can’t wait for his book to be shopped around to every editor in New York, except one: Avi Dietsch, a college rival and the novel’s “inspiration.” When Avi gets his hands on it, he sees nothing but theft—and opportunity. Caleb is forced to make a Faustian bargain, one that tests his theories of success, ambition, and the limits of art.

Book Discussion | Just Pursuit: A Black Prosecutor’s Fight for Fairness (online)


A CNN senior legal analyst, Sirius XM host, adjunct professor at the George Washington University School of Law, Laura Coates is also a former Federal Prosecutor. When she joined the Department of Justice, she wanted to advocate for the most vulnerable among us. But she quickly realized that even with the best intentions, “the pursuit of justice creates injustice.” Through her experiences revealed in her new book, we see no matter how fair you try to fight, being Black, a woman, and a mother are identities often at odds in the justice system. Coates talks with CNN reporter Sara Sidner about her experiences: how, on the front lines of our legal system, she saw how Black communities are policed differently; how Black cases are prosecuted differently; how Black defendants are judged differently — and how others in the system either abused power or were abused by it—for example, when an undocumented witness was arrested by ICE, when a white colleague taught Coates how to unfairly interrogate a young Black defendant, or when a judge victim-blamed a young sexual assault survivor based on her courtroom attire.
