About Us

The European Practitioners Network Against Antisemitism (EPNA) is a dynamic, people-centric, and community-driven collaborative alliance comprising organizations from across the European Union and beyond.

Our network offers a nurturing environment where members can collaborate, exchange ideas, and craft innovative strategies to combat antisemitism and racism. EPNA serves as a central hub for individuals actively involved in the fight against these forms of prejudice. We bring together professionals, experts, and advocates from diverse backgrounds, including antiracist organizations, Jewish institutions, memorial sites, and many others, to collectively address these challenges. Our operations are structured through specialized working groups, fostering intense collaboration and knowledge-sharing among members.

Through this collective effort, our members empower one another, learn from shared experiences, and identify best practices that can be effectively employed to counter antisemitism and racism. Our ultimate goal is to foster a culture of collaboration and cross-border learning, believing that this approach will yield more impactful outcomes and amplify our collective voice.

Given our multi-perspective and multi-methodical approach, we aim to leverage the variety of political and cultural perspectives and approaches in the field of combatting antisemitism. We are committed to developing a sustainable platform where practitioners empower and learn from one another.

Our Goals

  • Learn and Understand: Our primary objective is to foster a deeper understanding of the challenges faced by practitioners standing up against antisemitism. By learning from each other’s experiences and expertise, we can mutually enhance our efforts.
  • Build a Strong Network: We aim to create a robust and enduring network that spans across Europe and beyond. This network will serve as a support system, allowing us to collaborate, share resources, and amplify our impact.
  • Identify Best Practices: Through our collective process, we seek to identify best practices in countering antisemitism and to evaluate their potential applicability to diverse national and social contexts.
  • Enhance Visibility: Our network not only emphasizes internal communication at eye level, but also aims to contribute to expanding the public visibility of all our members. Elected spokespersons will make a crucial contribution to this.

Our Approach

Our network employs various strategies to drive meaningful change:

  • Check-Ins: Regular check-ins via zoom will facilitate open communication among its members. These meetings will allow us to share updates, progress, and challenges, fostering a strong sense of community.
  • Working Groups: To facilitate focused discussions and collaboration, we will organise working groups dedicated to specific topics related to combating antisemitism. These groups will provide an opportunity for in-depth exploration of challenges, exchange of expertise, and the fostering of collaboration.
  • Workshops: We will organise a total of five workshops across Europe, providing valuable insights, tools, and resources to enhance our individual and collective efforts against antisemitism. Travel expenses may be partially or fully covered by our travel fund.
  • Microgrants: The network will offer a microgrant programme to support innovative projects and initiatives aimed at countering antisemitism. These microgrants will enable bi- and multilateral cooperation among network members.
  • Conference: At our conference in spring 2025 we will bring together our network members with stakeholders from diverse backgrounds, European decision makers and journalists to present and discuss our findings.
