During Georgia’s 2023 legislative session, American Jewish Committee (AJC) and the broader Jewish community advocated for House Bill 30/144. This bill would enable Georgia departments and officials to reference the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) Working Definition of Antisemitism when considering the intent of a discriminatory or violent act against a Jewish person or institution. The IHRA working definition has been embraced as a part of the White House’s recently announced National Strategy to Combat Antisemitism.
While the bill didn’t pass the State Senate, there’s still another chance in 2024.
This is where you come in. Hearing from members of the Jewish community is critical for legislators to understand the importance of this legislation and vote in its favor.
Join AJC Atlanta for advocacy training for community members who want to take part in advocacy meetings with legislators.
Participants will gain a deeper understanding of the legislation, what it does and does not do, and how to speak about the legislation with lawmakers. The training will be interactive and participatory.
