A conversation with the Honorable Jason S. Miyares, Attorney General of Virginia, as he shares takeaways from his March trip to Poland and Israel on a statewide conversation online on Thursday, June 1 at 12:30 p.m.
The bipartisan trip spearheaded by Attorney General Miyares, co-led by North Carolina Attorney General Josh Stein, included 14 attorneys general from across the country. The delegation visited Auschwitz with one of the foremost Holocaust scholars in the United States where they discussed the historical rise of antisemitism in the 1930s and 1940s, and how it was able to thrive in progressive European cities. Included in their visit to Israel, was a meeting with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs where they learned about the background and impact of the global Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement, and a visit with Israel’s President, Isaac Herzog and Senior Advisor to the Prime Minister, Ambassador Ron Dermer.
The Attorney General returned to the Commonwealth with renewed determination to combat the scourge of antisemitism through his newly created Antisemitism Task Force.
