White House Introduces Plan to Combat Antisemitism on College Campuses

The White House said they’re taking steps to stop antisemitism, which is discrimination against Jewish people. This comes after a rise in such discrimination following attacks in Israel last October.

President Biden will speak about this on Holocaust Remembrance Day at an event by the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum.

The Education Department will send guidance to schools about antisemitism and other hate acts. The Department of Homeland Security will help campuses with online safety. The State Department will talk with tech companies to tackle antisemitic content.

Since the October attacks in Israel, there’s been a surge in antisemitic incidents, especially on college campuses during protests against the Gaza war. Biden will urge unity against hate in his speech.

The Anti-Defamation League reported a big increase in antisemitic incidents after the attacks in October. The government has already started efforts to protect Jewish people.

Last May, the government made a plan to fight antisemitism nationally. Biden will speak about all this as protests about the Gaza war have grown, with concerns about antisemitism in some protests.

Biden has criticized violence and hate in these protests, saying they should stay peaceful and not target any group, including Jewish people. He said there’s no room for hate or violence in America.
