Hamilton’s Never Again Group and the Progressive Muslims Institute Canada have joined forces to bring Tammi Rossman-Benjamin, the renowned crusader against campus anti-Semitism, to Canada where she will be speaking on the subject of “Anti-Semitism on Campus – How much do you know?” at McMaster University, room 1A6 in the University Health Sciences Centre on Tuesday, October 29 at 7:30 PM.

Tammi is a lecturer at the University of California, Santa Cruz, and a co-founder of the AMCHA Initiative (‘Amcha’ is the code word that helped survivors identify fellow Jews in Europe), an organization whose mission is to investigate, document, educate about and combat anti-Semitic behaviour on college and university campuses. Here is the most recent article listed on their website:

Tammi was scheduled to be the finale keynote speaker for the 2013 Israel Truth Week conference, but had to cancel due to a family emergency. The Never Again Group was a critical ally in producing the 2013 ITW conference, and the Progressive Muslims Institute Canada is headed by Tahir Gorah who was a Day 1 speaker.
I do hope to see you there for this very important lecture.
