Hillel's Response to Recent Hate Crimes

by Hillel News |Aug 30, 1999|Comments

Hillel: The Foundation for Jewish Campus Life, joins the greater Jewish community in condemning the outrageous and heinous acts motivated by hatred. Hillel also recognizes that our students, professionals, and community supporters have the ability and the opportunity to be proactive in response to these incidents. It is important that we advocate for ourselves and our community, and that we work together with other multi-cultural, inter-racial, and inter-faith organizations on campus and in the community to promote unity.
