We’ve also led the effort to educate the public – through letters, articles, speeches, press releases, ads and petitions – about campus anti-Semitism and Jewish students’ right to legal protection.
Senator Specter and Congressman Sherman have taken a leadership role in ensuring that Jewish students are protected. We have worked closely with them on the issue, including helping to craft the language in the bill that was just introduced.
All of us should urge our representatives in Congress to support this bill so that an unjust gap in the law will finally be filled, and Jewish students will no longer have to tolerate anti-Semitic harassment on their campuses.
