Antisemitism in America is real and rampant. Here in America, the number of antisemitic hate crimes has been increasing over the past few years (FBI, 2015, 2018). Jewish Americans are unjustly targeted due to embedded prejudices that have been implanted into broad American culture. These people deserve protection. As a people, we have a responsibility to call for change. 

This injustice is particularly prevalent on college campuses. On American college campuses, 54% of Jewish students report that they have been subject to or have witnesses antisemitism on their campus (Kosmin, Keyser). That is more than half of Jewish college students reporting injustice on their campus. This is a huge problem, and it needs to end. 

By signing this petition, you are giving a voice to the voiceless. By signing this petition, you are calling for universities to crack down on anti-Jewish behavior. For years, universities have been ignoring instances of antisemitism on their campuses. At Rutgers University, a club formed called "Defunding Rutgers Hillel"(Washington Post). At American University, antisemitic graffiti was found in a student bathroom (Washington Post).  

This needs to end. Sign this petition and compel American universities to address their antisemitism problem.
