State Senator Bill Weber and Assemblyman John McGowan, Call to Combat Antisemitism on College Campuses with Over 40 New York Elected Officials

State Senator Bill Weber and Assemblyman John McGowan, representing Rockland County, have taken a prominent role alongside over 40 state and city officials in a collective effort to combat antisemitism on New York college campuses.

These elected officials have signed a letter addressed to Governor Kathy Hochul, urging collaboration with university leaders and the U.S. Department of Justice to address the rise of antisemitism. Specifically, the letter calls for investigations and appropriate actions against hate groups, such as the Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), whose New York chapters are accused of promoting violence and slogans derived from the Hamas Charter, advocating for the annihilation of the Jewish people.

Senator Weber’s recent introduction of legislation to deny tuition assistance to students engaged in antisemitic activities reinforces the seriousness of the issue. The call for action follows mounting concerns about antisemitism and hate speech on campuses across the state, underlining the commitment to a safe and inclusive college environment.

With the leadership of Rockland County officials Weber and McGowan, this collective effort signals a strong stance against campus antisemitism. The response from Governor Hochul is eagerly awaited as New York takes action to counter hate and extremism in educational institutions.
