In partnership with the Candian Antisemitism Foundation, Ottawa Against Antisemitism brings you RISE UP OTTAWA! Over the past year, we’ve witnessed and experienced an unprecedented and terrifying rise in antisemitism. The fact that it’s happening in our schools cannot be ignored. Jewish children as young as 3 years old are being harassed, gaslighted, segregated, threatened, and attacked. Antisemitic beliefs have become a global pandemic in education. Everyone has the fundamental right to be safe, especially in school. Now is the time for our ENTIRE community to come TOGETHER against hate.
1. EDUCATE & ENGAGE
- Professionals will lead breakout sessions for children and adults of all ages to share and learn how to safely and peacefully advocate with FACTS
