South Carolina Citizens Advocacy Day

South Carolina Citizens Advocacy Day

On Wednesday, April 26th the Louis D. Brandeis Center will be in attendance during Citizens Advocacy Day in Columbia, South Carolina. Citizens Advoacy Day is an event intended to bring more public awareness to anti-Semitism legislation, as well as give an opportunity to meet the organizations and legislators working to fight against anti-Semitism in South Carolina. Other organizations in attendance include Stand With Us, The Israel Project, Christians United for Israel, Israel Allies Foundation, and the Jewish Federations of both Columbia and Charleston for the event. Citizens Advocacy Day will include an opportunity for the South Carolina public to hear key legislators speak, such as Alan Clemmons (R-SC), on the H-3643 legislation that is currently attempting to apply a widely respected definition of anti-Semitism to South Carolina’s public universities. This is a state version of the Anti-Semitism Awareness Act that was introduced to the U.S. Senate last year. Similar bills have already been introduced in Virginia and New York.

The events start at 9:30 in Room 110 of the Solomon Blatt Building at 1105 Pendleton Street, SC State Capitol, Columbia. A complimentary lunch will be served and there will be a group photo taken on the capitol steps. This event offers a unique opportunity to both show direct support in the fight against anti-Semitism and to take part in the civic process that drives our nation.
