Gov. Glenn Youngkin announced his administration is seeking applications for individuals to participate on the Commission to Combat Antisemitism.
“Every Virginian deserves the protection of the law, and this commission will chart a course for our Commonwealth that leaves antisemitism in the past. Our Jewish friends and neighbors must know that we stand with them against the tide of hate and discrimination. I sincerely look forward to working with the passionate people selected for this commission on charting this new course so that everyone is respected regardless of their identity, color or creed,” said Youngkin.
“In the face of prejudice and injustice, we look forward to working with all Virginians in upholding the ideals of justice and equality embedded in the Declaration and the Constitution and ridding our communities of antisemitic harassment, violence, and discrimination,” said Chief Diversity, Opportunity, and Inclusion Officer Angela Sailor.
