In this episode of Giving Voice, IHB historian Jill Weiss Simins talks to Adrianne Slash and Aaron Welcher, Indianapolis community leaders working on social justice issues. Slash serves on the board of the Civil Rights Commission and writes columns for the Indianapolis Business Journal and the Indianapolis Recorder. Welcher serves as the Programs & Communications Coordinator at the Jewish Community Relations Council and works to build coalitions of Jewish, Black, LGBTQ+, and other groups and faiths. Their important discussion in this episode considers how white Hoosiers can be allies for their Black neighbors in the ongoing struggle for civil rights, the responsibility of Jewish Hoosiers for continuing this work, and how people can get involved in the work that needs to be done in their own communities.
