As Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Center (FSWC) prepares to face an increase in anti-Israel and antisemitic activity on campuses, churches and unions across the country, we are thrilled to have new partners in our ongoing efforts to help address this issue, and to promote our agenda of greater tolerance in Canada. 

FSWC champions Esther Dressler and Ricky Brooks are excited about taking on the challenges of co-chairing the Lawyers4Wiesenthal (L4W) group, and seem well prepared to fight the good fight to achieve our shared goals. 

What is Lawyers4Wiesenthal?

Lawyers4Wiesenthal is a group of distinguished legal professionals who are dedicated to support the work and mandate of the Canadian Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Center. The Lawyers4Wiesenthal mandate for the 2019-2020 program year is to strengthen FSWC by raising funds to empower social justice programs such as Freedom Day, Speaker’s Idol, Tour 4Humanity, and Tolerance and Diversity Workshops. Lawyers4Wiesenthal is a leadership committee that leads by example and sets the tone for fundraising and engagement within the FSWC support base and the greater community.
