Federation-CJMA Virtual Civil & Human Rights Mission

Webinar banner


The Center for Jewish-Multicultural Affairs (CJMA) is proud to present a Virtual Civil & Human Rights Mission for the entire Greater New Orleans community!



Samantha Power, Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, 2013-2017


This virtual symposium will bring participants to five places around the world at which a group suffered from, or is currently experiencing, an incidence of identity-based hate. Centered around the four CJMA outreach areas – African-American outreach, multi-faith outreach, Latin-American outreach, and LGBTQ outreach – with one additional session on the Holocaust and anti-Semitism, approximately half-hour long sessions on each topic will be presented by renowned experts.


Please contact Mithun Kamath at if your organization would like to partner with the CJMA to help promote this event to potential participants and/or contribute to the event as a sponsor.


The CJMA's Virtual Civil & Human Rights Mission is presented by Jones Walker and Karl Bernard Law.
