United States Mayors Stand Up to Hate
AJC Project Interchange (PI) mayoral alumni are central in the fight against antisemitism and rising hate crimes, and play a key role in U.S.-Israel relationship building. Just one month into the campaign, 12 out of PI’s 14 current mayoral alumni signed on to the statement about the need to combat antisemitism. The signatories include: Mayors Hardie Davis of Augusta (U.S. Mayors 2017), Michelle de la Isla of Topeka (U.S. Mayors 2019), Peggy Dunn of Leawood (Civic and Policy Leaders 2002), Buddy Dyer of Orlando (State Officials 2000), Eric Garcetti of LA (U.S. Mayors 2017), John Giles of Mesa (U.S. Mayors 2017), Andrew Ginther of Columbus (U.S. Mayors 2018), Rick Kriseman of St. Petersburg (U.S. Mayors 2019), Betsy Price or Fort Worth (U.S. Mayors 2019), Thomas McGee of Lynn (State Legislators 1995), Kathy Sheehan of Albany (U.S. Mayors 2019), and Nan Whaley of Dayton (U.S. Mayors 2018).
