Zeke Cohen, a Baltimore councilmember and former city schools teacher, has never hesitated to call out bias and bigotry, whatever its source. The grandchild of Holocaust survivors, he has been a leading voice in denouncing acts of religious hate in our community. After swastikas were painted on light posts in his community last year, he took to Facebook to celebrate a spontaneous community action to cover them up by painting rainbow hearts. Zeke has also been at the forefront of a movement to heal trauma in our communities, sponsoring legislation that resulted in the Elijah Cummings Healing City Act, making Baltimore the first city in the country to comprehensively legislate trauma-responsive care. In this session, Zeke will talk with ICJS executive director Heather Miller Rubens about confronting religious hate and how that is linked to promoting healing from trauma.
