The Rise of Antisemitism: A Frontline View
AJC Washington and the Community Relations Council of the United Jewish Federation of Tidewater are please to co-host an online event featuring AJC CEO David Harris in discussion on countering antisemitism in all its guises by calling on governments to act and by organizing coalitions with other faith and ethnic groups to forge a united front against hate.
Student government should be an opportunity to develop leadership skills, work with diverse groups of student leaders to improve campus life, and plan fulfilling programs for one’s peers.

How can Jewish students and their supporters change the conversation in student government to enable student leaders to focus on the issues that directly impact the lives and wellbeing of the campus community? Join us to hear from student leaders who have first-hand experience working to push student governments to act as a means of improving student life, instead of an arena for petty geopolitical battles.
