My name is Elisa Hategan. I'm a Jewish Romanian-Canadian writer, public speaker and journalist who has published in various print and digital media for more than a decade. I am active in the literary community, host a writers' online group and run a couple of blogs. I am a multiple Toronto Arts, Ontario Arts Council and Canada Arts Council grants winner, as well as served as a judge on OAC panels.
I'm also a renowned public speaker and subject matter expert on anti-racism, extremist political movements and terrorist recruitment tactics. I have been interviewed by CBC, CTV, CityTV, Global TV, Toronto Star, Toronto Sun, Globe & Mail, Metro News, Macleans, Now Magazine, Xtra, Canadian Jewish News, Ottawa Citizen, Vision TV and various international media. I have appeared as a keynote speaker for Toronto City Hall, LGBT, Jewish and community groups and high schools across Canada.
As a teenager, I was the inspiration behind the 1998 CBC film WHITE LIES, which starred Sarah Polley as me. My story has since been published in the memoir Race Traitor: The True Story of Canadian Intelligence's Greatest Cover-Up.
