Our Combatting Antisemitism Work

A central part of the UJS Campaigns Team's Work is combatting Antisemitism on campus, both proactively and reactively. UJS train University and Students' Union Staff on Antisemitism Awareness, and defend students in instances of discrimination.

Take a look at the work we've been doing in this area, and visit the Campaigns Hub for all the details, and more information!
