Join CIJA and Tell the Government of Canada: Combat Online Hate!

Online hate – including antisemitism – is not a new phenomenon, and it has grown exponentially in recent years. The majority of Canadians reject such hatred; however, the internet continues to provide a platform for those spreading hatred to attract followers and share their message.

Federation CJA's advocacy agent, the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs (CIJA), has long been engaging directly with Facebook, Twitter, and other social media companies in an effort to work towards meaningful solutions. But working with the private sector is not enough.

We have made it a top priority to raise the issue of online hate with Canada's political leaders, including recently testifying in front of the House of Commons Justice Committee.  

These crucial efforts now need your commitment and your participation.

Click here to take action and add your name to the petition telling the Government of Canada to combat online hate!
