Mission Statement

We will build upon the important work done by the House of Representatives’ Bipartisan Task Force for Combating Anti-Semitism, working together to address this urgent issue and to identify and highlight areas where we can take action and develop solutions to eliminate Anti-Semitic hatred from our communities and from our country.
