Anti-Semitism Awareness Act

Updated: Mar 15, 2020

H.R. 5924/S. 2940, referred to as the "Anti-Semitism Awareness Act," directs the Department of Education to take the State Department's anti-Semitism definition into account when investing harassment allegations. However, anti-Semitic discrimination and harassment are already prohibited in federally-funded entities. This bill is thus reiterative and allows for equation of Israeli state criticism as anti-Semitic discrimination and harassment.
