How IHRA Harms Us: An Anti-Racist Conversation on Weaponized Antisemitism
Join Independent Jewish Voices Canada for a webinar marking three years since the launch of our NoIHRA campaign.

This webinar will place anti-racist scholars and activists in conversation on how the struggles against Islamophobia, anti-Palestinian racism and antisemitism are intertwined with the fight to resist the IHRA definition of antisemitism. It will discuss how the IHRA definition continues to harm anti-racist movements in Canada, and what we can do instead to combat these forms of racism.

* Closed captioning will be available for this event
