Original Message The so-called “Anti-Semitism Awareness Act” would expand the definition of Title VI protection to include political criticism of Israel, threatening free speech.
UPDATE: The Senate passed the bill unanimously on December 1, 2016. We oppose the Roskam-Deutch companion bill in the House and are heartened to see the L.A. Times Editorial Board and the expansive Anti-Semitism definition's author (pdf | Get Adobe® Reader®) come out against the bill.

At a time when truly anti-Semitic attacks are happening across the country, it is particularly dangerous to divert attention away from actual anti-Semitism.

The bill would help enable a crackdown on activists for voicing criticisms that, constitutionally, should be protected expression.
