“The horrendous attack in Jersey City is yet another glaring example of how Jews are being violently targeted across the United States. It’s time to hold elected officials accountable: if you enable anti-Semitism or fail to take it seriously, we will see to it that you lose reelection. We will see to it before other communities become memorials. Looking the other way never has – and never will – end well.”
The Anti-Semitism Accountability Project (ASAP) is a $25 million political campaign that is taking action against the growing crisis of anti-Semitism in American politics, institutions, and culture. ASAP holds political and cultural leaders accountable for support or acceptance of anti-Semitism.
