In this time of rising anti-Semitism in the U.S. and a drastic increase in risk for Jewish students on college campuses, the U.S. House of Representatives is passing a new awareness act to combat this dangerous and deeply worrisome discrimination:

As pro-Hamas campus protests escalate and Jewish students’ safety is further put at risk, the Combat Antisemitism Movement (CAM) applauds the efforts of Speaker Mike Johnson, Chairman Jim Jordan, Rep. Mike Lawler, and Rep. Josh Gottheimer, among many others, in securing overwhelming bipartisan passage of H.R. 6090, the Antisemitism Awareness Act (AAA), today, by a 320-91 margin…

Earlier this week, protesters at Columbia University broke into a building and Jewish students were blocked from entering classes, showing that this legislation is now more important than ever to provide the Department of Education with the tools necessary to clearly identify, address, and, more importantly, prevent antisemitic incidents from happening, creating a safer and more welcoming environment for every student to learn.
