Kentucky Human Rights Commission calls for antisemitism task force
Kentucky’s Human Rights Commission is urging on all of the state’s institutions to speak out against antisemitism.
In a release, the commission says, in reaction to an increase in antisemitism in the commonwealth, that the group officially condemns the support of any action that “creates a hostile environment for persons of the Jewish or any other faith.”
It goes on to urge all institutions in the state to speak out clearly in repudiating antisemitic actions as well as all actions that foster hate, distrust, or discrimination against people of any faith.
The letter calls on the commonwealth to create an antisemitism task force, but does not delve into what its role might be.
The resolution is set to be delivered to Gov. Andy Beshear.
