As a 21st-century museum, dedicated to representing diverse, multicultural communities, Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) strives to serve as a forum for open, honest, and difficult dialogue while creating understanding through the power of art. PAMM condemns threats of violence and harmful antisemitic rhetoric, and we stand in solidarity with the Jewish community. Our hearts are with all affected by ongoing antisemitic beliefs and demonstrations.
In light of recent events, we’ve compiled a list of educational resources to encourage everyone to consider what steps can be taken in their own lives to support the Jewish community and actively work against hate.
Educating ourselves and breaking down bias.
From themes in artwork to documentaries and books, there are so many places to start learning about systemic biases and how historical hatred and bigotry have spread to our modern day. The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) has a full library of information and resources. The American Jewish Committee also has a vast array of resources speaking about antisemitism.
Personally reflecting and having those uncomfortable conversations.
Talking about antisemitism, although hard, is necessary and starts with personal reflection. Read more.
Making your voice heard with elected officials.
Change starts in your community. Make sure to register and participate in not only national, but in local elections too. Find out who your representatives are and ask what they are doing for the Jewish community. Find yours.
Supporting organizations that work for positive change.
There are so many organizations both nationally and locally to involve yourself with to take action toward positive change. Find a group that aligns with your views and explore how you can support.
