December 6, 2022 | The Commission to Combat Antisemitism, created by Governor Glenn Youngkin on his first day in office to reaffirm Virginia’s commitment to stand against hatred and intolerance, has released its findings in the form of a 39-page report.
The report notes that in 2021, antisemitic incidents across the country reached an all-time high, with more than 2,700 separate incidents being reported. So far this year, Virginia has already seen nearly 350 reports of antisemitic acts.
The commission was charged with looking at the root causes of antisemitism, reducing antisemitic incidents in the state, and proposing solutions that would hold hate crime perpetrators accountable while also supporting victims.
