U.S. Commission on Civil Rights launched a Web site to end campus anti-Semitism.
On April 13, 2007, the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights launched a Web site that contributes to ending campus anti-Semitism. Designed to educate college students and others on anti-Semitism, to urge victims and witnesses of anti-Semitism to report such incidents and to serve as an information source for students, the Web site is part of a campaign that the Commission undertook following the occurrence of anti-Semitic incidents on many of the nation’s university and college campuses.
In November of 2005, the Commission heard testimony from a panel of experts that anti-Semitism persists on college campuses and is often cloaked as criticism of Israel. The experts agreed that too many college students are unaware of their rights and protections against anti-Semitic behavior. Additionally, the Commission published its findings in a recent report on Campus Anti-Semitism.
