Fighting Anti-Semitism: #Jew4ADay
1. Coordinate an impactful, major national-level campaign on the topic of Anti-Semitism that will raise the issue before, during, and post campaign.
2. Educating individuals on the definition, identification, and prevention of Anti-Semitism, while having individuals pledge to commit taking action towards it.
As Anti-Semitism and Holocaust Denial continues to rise, Monday, April 20th of 2020, International Holocaust Remembrance Day, was chosen as the designated day to host this national campaign across campuses.
Students from across the country will gather at the main areas of their campuses to show their Jewish peers that they stand in solidarity with them, and understand what it means to be “you,” a “Jew,” for that day.
In each location students will have a chance to sign a pledge physically and on an online petition created specifically for the event.
Students will take a massive group photo on their campus to be shared online with the hashtag #Jew4ADay and the participants will commit to learn more on the topic and help fight anti-Semitism.
