AWARE-LA White anti-racist Saturday dialogues, https://www.awarela.org/saturday-dialogue Saturday Dialogue is a gathering for white anti-racists who want to discuss issues of identity, community, privilege and racism in our lives with the intention to strengthen our practice as anti-racists in alliances, relationships, and interactions with people of color.

Regular, recurring dialogues throughout the year focus on the intersections of multiple identities, including Race and Class, Sexuality and Race, and Gender and Race. Other workshops focus on relationships, Radical White Identity and Community, and issues such as police and the prison industrial complex, immigration, and gentrification.

We currently have four monthly Saturday Dialogues, which used to meet in various places throughout LA County, and are temporarily meeting online through Zoom. We also have one monthly “Online Sunday Dialogue” which was originally made available for folks who cannot make it to meetings in LA, or on Saturdays. Sign up here https://actionnetwork.org/forms/aware-la-email-list/ to receive reminder emails about Saturday Dialogues.

Rembrandt Plumbs the Depths: The Jewish Bride, Sinners, and Saints, 2p PST, online. https://hammer.ucla.edu/programs-events/2020/rembrandt-plumbs-depths-jewish-bride-sinners-and-saints

In LA alone, there are no fewer than 14 paintings, a dozen drawings, and nearly 300 etchings by Rembrandt van Rijn. In this series of online lectures for the Hammer Museum, art historian, curator, and museum director John Walsh examines these works and Rembrandt’s career in detail, including recent research, surprise reappearances, and shifting opinions about the artist and his achievements.

Rembrandt’s last works have a profundity that reaches across to us from a great distance of time and culture. This lecture shows how the pictures use historical and Biblical events—or merely allusions to them—for pared-down compositions that touch the viewer with their quiet eloquence, rich color and brushwork, mysterious light, and deep feeling. Join live: The program will play live on this page. RSVP to receive an email reminder on the day of the program. Watch later: This program will be recorded and the recording will be available soon after. Need help?: Contact our visitor experience team at info@hammer.ucla.edu or 310-443-7000.

WHAT DO WE DO NOW? 1p PST  on-line. Yale national security law scholar and former FBI counter-intelligence agent Asha Rangappa, also a CNN commentator, visits Zócalo to discuss the way forward after one of the most traumatic elections in our nation’s history. Moderated by Julian E. Barnes, National Security Reporter, NY Times. “What do we do now?” asks Robert Redford at the end of The Candidate, the 1972 political satire that ends in an election upset—and existential despair. After a presidential election defined by an international pandemic and rampant misinformation, and a post-election period that seems destined to be marked by bitterness and conflict, the US must ask itself the same plaintive question. What comes next for the republic, its discontents, and its enemies? Can the US rebuild vital government agencies, including in public health, national security, and intelligence, that have been at the center of our angriest political disputes? https://www.zocalopublicsquare.org/event/what-do-we-do-now/

Why Is It So Easy To Get Away with Murder? 1p PST, Zocalo Public Square, Arizona State University, Smithsonian Institution, on-line, registration required. If you commit murder in the US, there’s a 40% chance you’ll get away with it. That shocking statistic belies other realities; you have better than even odds of getting away with murder if you kill people who are poor, powerless, or non-white, or if you do your murdering in less wealthy and developed places. Why are we willing to tolerate such widespread failure to achieve justice for murder victims? To what extent are the nation’s social problems and inequalities reflected in how authorities seek to prevent and investigate homicide? And what are the costs and consequences of this widespread impunity for families, communities, cities, and the country as a whole? BuzzFeed News West Coast investigations editor Jessica Garrison, author of The Devil’s Harvest: A Ruthless Killer, a Terrorized Community, and the Search for Justice in California’s Central Valley, visits Zócalo to examine the American way of murder through the case of Jose Martinez, who killed three dozen people over three decades. https://www.zocalopublicsquare.org/event/why-is-it-so-easy-to-get-away-with-murder/

Rise Up to the Moment – Muslim American Society Convention, 10a–Nov 28 at 7p. Join the LA and SD chapters of MAS for a re-imagined and revitalized experience of the Convention like never before: all from the comfort of your home. Against the political, social, and cultural currents of our society, Muslims should be harnessing and leading the tide of reform in this society. Because we understand that social reform is always coupled with personal reform as Muslims committed to pleasing Allah. Join us on Thanksgiving weekend to hear from scholars, fuqaha’, political leaders, speakers, activists, and young people on what it takes for us as a collective to instill the change we want to see.
