American Hellenic Institute Joins Combat Antisemitism Movement’s Global Coalition as Partner Organization
January 9, 2022
The American Hellenic Institute (AHI) announced this week that it had formally joined the Combat Antisemitism Movement (CAM) as a partner organization.
CAM’s interfaith and non-partisan coalition — dedicated to the common mission of fighting and ultimately defeating antisemitism — spans the globe, counting more than 400 partner organizations and 360,000 individuals as members.
“We are honored to join the Combat Antisemitism Movement (CAM),” AHI President Nick Larigakis stated. “AHI has been at the forefront in working with the American Jewish community, including organizations such as B’nai B’rith International and the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, to promote and advance the Eastern Mediterranean partnership between Greece, Cyprus, and Israel and has advocated for the United States’ engagement to support it. It is equally important that a similar effort to work with our Jewish colleagues exists at the community level to combat antisemitism.”
