We are mobilizing an effort against a lobbying onslaught in Sacramento by the Coalition for Liberated Ethnic Studies (CLES) on April 17th. It is targeting these lawmakers in a disinformation campaign advocating for policies that directly contribute to the rise of antisemitism in California’s K12 schools and college campuses. Specifically, they seek to normalize anti-Zionist antisemitism by opposing the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) working definition of antisemitism. And they want their version of “liberated” ethnic studies to be mandatory for admission to University of California schools, potentially limiting academic choice for students.  Please click the button below to send an email to these legislators to oppose their efforts:
