Partners in Action: CAM’s Coalition Taking a Stand Against Antisemitism
Each week, we highlight the activities of our partner organizations around the world who are doing amazing work to combat antisemitism.
This past week, people and organizations around the world celebrated International Day of Tolerance in a number of different ways. From public statements of solidarity to a chess tournament in the name of promoting international cooperation, a variety of efforts demonstrated the universal desire for connection between human beings no matter their personal identifying backgrounds.
On International Day of Tolerance this week and every other day of the year, the Combat Antisemitism Movement (CAM) and its partner organizations are working tirelessly each and every day to push back against hatred and bigotry and build a better future for all of humanity.
