Thank you for your interest in Liberation75!
Please enjoy the following updates!
We are inviting organizations, institutions, and individuals in the Greater Toronto Area to host international attendees on the evening of Monday, June 1st, 2020.
Hosting a Community Dine-Around is a valuable way to showcase your organization's mission and work, and tout the outstanding diversity and hospitality of our communities (Jewish and otherwise)!
Your Dine-Around may be hosted at any safe and legal location in the Greater Toronto Area, so long as it can contain a minimum of 30 guests. Some ideas include (but are not limited to) a school classroom or gymnasium, a museum or gallery, a store, a restaurant or cafe, an office, a theatre, or even your own home!
What is expected of a Dine-Around host?
As host, you will be responsible for providing dinner and programming related to the Holocaust, liberation and/or human rights for the number of guests that you specify (minimum of 30), at your own cost. The guests' transportation to and from the Metro Toronto Convention Centre will be provided by Liberation75's sponsors.
We welcome involvement from diverse organizations. To get involved, please complete the Community Dine-Around form (also available as PDF).

Thank you to our 90+ organizations from around the world that have supported, guided, and advanced Liberation75 in so many ways. Our group of participating organizations is continuously growing, and it's certainly not too late to join!
What do participating organizations do, and what kind of commitment is expected?
The roles and extents of involvement vary based on each organization's preferences and capacities! Some of our participating organizations are undertaking large roles in Liberation75's planning, marketing, programming, and more; some are organizing specific events and/or exhibits; some are fundraisers or sponsors; some are acting on our committees; and some are simply helping to spread the word about us to their contacts. However you participate, your organization will enjoy your logo being displayed on our website & promotional materials, and becoming a team member of this historical event!
