On Monday, September 11, from 6 PM-7 PM PT, join a special Student Hearing on Antisemitism, an event designed to amplify the voices of students and address the challenges they face regarding antisemitism. Inspired by the traditional “citizen hearing” model, this event has been tailored to focus on student experiences and concerns.
The hearing — intended for students grades 7 through 12 — is a joint effort between the Educators’ Caucus for Israel, the Association of Jewish Educators at the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD), ClubZ, and the Israeli-American Civic Action Network. The purpose is to foster meaningful dialogue, deepen understanding, and pave the way for collaborative solutions. Register now and be a part of this impactful conversation.
What Is a Student Hearing?
A student hearing is a participatory method specifically tailored for students to voice their concerns, experiences, and suggestions on specific issues. The primary goal is to ensure that the voices of students are heard and considered in decision-making processes. At this event, pre-selected students will share their personal experiences and insights on antisemitism in schools, and LAUSD School Board members will engage with the students, deepening the dialogue and understanding of the issues presented.

In May, CAM co-sponsored the Combating Antisemitism Summit for Parents and Educators in Greater Los Angeles, with Partnerships and Diplomatic Relations Manager Catherine Szkop delivering remarks on behalf of the organization.
“You know that one of the answers to fighting antisemitism and hate is education,” Szkop said. “However, sometimes education can be used as misinformation and delegitimization. In the last few years, the state of California has become a battleground for the minds of our vulnerable youth in public schools. Fringe groups continue to push here and across the United States for overtly anti-Israel, antisemitic ethnic studies curricula — but they have thankfully been met with backlash, many times thanks to the efforts of those of you with us today that understand how dangerous this issue is.”
