Mission Statement

The mission of the Senate Bipartisan Task Force for Combating Antisemitism is to collaborate with our colleagues in the House, law enforcement, the White House, federal agencies, state and local government, educators, advocates, clergy, and other stakeholders to combat antisemitism by educating and empowering our communities. We shall accomplish this by supporting legislative efforts to combat antisemitism, promoting Holocaust education, and bringing the issue of condemning and combating antisemitism to the forefront of our national conversation. We will build upon the important work done by the House of Representatives’ Bipartisan Task Force for Combating Antisemitism, working together to address this urgent issue and to identify and highlight areas where we can take action and develop solutions to eliminate Antisemitic hatred from our communities and from our country.
