We have a clear choice to make when it comes to antisemitism – ignore its impact and walk away or come together to push back against it.
Antisemitism: Face It, Fight It, the largest gathering of Canadian Jews and allies in years, is taking on the fight against this growing hate. It will transform you from a passive victim to an engaged activist focused on fighting back against Jew-hatred.
A wide range of speakers, including social media influencers, local activists, law enforcement, and international advisors on antisemitism, will share invaluable insights with our community about how we can confront and overcome antisemitism. Check out the full complement of speakers here.
You’ll leave better equipped to fight antisemitism in your daily life.
Sign up today at www.fightit.ca to show up, speak up, and step up against Jew-hatred.
Read on to meet Hannah Alper, one of more than 30 featured speakers.
The CIJA Team
Western University student Hannah Alper has, since the age of nine, used her voice to motivate and empower people of all ages to identify their passion and take action for a better world. She has traveled the world to speak about and work on education, poverty, clean water, mental health, anti-bullying, homelessness, and – more recently – antisemitism.
An activist, journalist, author, and changemaker, Hannah is one of 30+ speakers leading what promises to be an unforgettable two-day conversation with Canada’s Jewish community about how, together, we can fight antisemitism.
Hannah is one of several impassioned Canadians who, on Monday evening's ‘Facing Reality: Making a Difference and Being a Difference’ panel at Antisemitism: Face It, Fight It, will tell us about the experiences that led to them to becoming activists in their own right.
