We combat antisemitism, along with all other divisive systems of oppression, including homophobia, transphobia, sexism, and Islamophobia. We support a resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict that recognizes the right to self-determination for both the Jewish and Palestinianian peoples and the essential human rights of all the land’s inhabitants.
