Face It, Fight It is the official launch of a sustained campaign to face, fight, and push back against the single-most important challenge we confront today: antisemitism.
This comprehensive conference includes two days of advocacy training for Jewish leaders, students, community advocates, advocacy professionals, and other faith and ethnic community leaders and partners on the critical issues facing the Jewish community.
You will learn the most effective strategies to engage the government and how to articulate the issues that matter most to our community. Participants will have opportunities for face-to-face meetings with key policy- and decision-makers on the Hill.
You will be part of the largest community gathering from coast to coast to coast standing strong, speaking with one voice!
You will go home empowered to be the change-maker our community needs right now!
In addition to international keynote speakers, panel discussions, advocacy training sessions, and networking opportunities over delicious meals, Face It, Fight It also offers:
Meeting and engagement opportunities on Parliament Hill
Reception with Parliamentarians and guests
A chance (for first-timers) to attend Question Period
An optional tour of the National Holocaust Monument hosted by a Member of Parliament
And, most importantly, while showing our collective support for the people and land of Israel, you will join forces with like-minded Jewish Canadians and allies from across our country in the fight against antisemitism.
