Who We Are
FAST (Fighting Antisemitism Together) was established as a coalition
of non-Jewish Canadian business and community leaders who came
speak out against antisemitism and to fund education and other projects
that encourage other non-Jews to speak out. This coalition was founded
by Elizabeth and Tony Comper in response to the documented increase
in vicious anti-Jewish incidents in Canada.
What We Stand For
FAST is dedicated to speaking out against antisemitism, the oldest
hatred in human history, and to funding education and other projects
to combat antisemitism. We believe it is time for non-Jews to take
the lead in eradicating antisemitism. Key goals are to teach children
that hatred has no place in Canada, and to encourage all children
to feel safe and secure to be who they are. We invite and challenge
other non-Jews of good will to rise up and be counted against antisemitism.
And we invite all people of good will to found similar organizations
to speak out against all forms of bigotry, racism and hatred.
