The international grassroots civil-rights movement #EndJewHatred is collaborating to present a groundbreaking, free community event, Stronger Together to #EndJewHatred, in Toronto on Sunday, Sept. 10 at 1 p.m. ET at the Bayt, 613 Clark Ave. W. Thornhill, Ontario.
Brooke Goldstein, co-founder of #EndJewHatred, will headline remotely as the featured speaker.
Goldstein, who is also preparing to release her upcoming new book, End Jew Hatred: A Manual for Mobilization, will discuss ways in which the Jewish community can organize to fight antisemitism and #EndJewHatred within our lifetime.
“Achieving victory in the fight against bigotry and hate requires coming together as a community, with our allies, to learn and use the strategies and tactics of grassroots mobilization,” she said. “We have seen tremendous advances for other minority communities who have stood up for their human rights, and this seminal event is meant to jump-start activism for the minority Jewish people in Canada. We are stronger when we work together to fight for our rights and for liberation from all forms of oppression.”
Attendees will learn practical tools they can use to address the systemic antisemitism they face and how they can become active partners in mobilizing to effect positive change. For example, some of the event topics include how to address systemic Jew-hatred in post-secondary institutions and identify antisemitic aspects of DEI programs.
“We call on people everywhere to join us in standing up to hate, conspiracies and lies,” said Alexandra Smith, a member of #EndJewHatred Canada. “Today, we make a different choice.”
