Pat Johnson

Pat Johnson is founder of Upstanders Canada, which was created to mobilize non-Jewish Canadians to stand up against anti-semitism and anti-Zionism.

“Antisemitism, race-hatred and bigotry against Jewish people is being normalized, even here in Canada,” Johnson says. Upstanders represents Canadians of every background, belief, religion, gender, orientation and ideology. He observes that “Too often, Jewish people are left alone to face and fight prejudice and Upstanders thinks that is wrong.”
