thumbs-up

  • Kudos to East Carolina University’s Student Government for passing a resolution against antisemitism titled, “The Fight Against Anti-Semitism Resolution” that included the U.S. State Department definition of antisemitism. The resolution was brought to SGA’s attention due to instances of antisemitism within the ECU community including graffiti targeting Jewish students found on campus and in off campus homes of Jewish students.
