United Against Hate


In January, as part of Interfaith Harmony Month, your Jewish Community Relations Council and Anti-Defamation League (ADL) offered an interactive presentation on anti-Semitism and hatred, and how we can stand together to provide protection from hate crimes.


If you missed the event, you can watch the video recording of the presentation and panel discussion.

Forty-six states have hate crime laws to protect vulnerable populations. South Carolina doesn't. No statewide hate crime law means that South Carolinans are less protected than they should be.


Stand against hate and let members of the legislature know that you want to see South Carolina pass hate crime legislation and that an issue of this magnitude deserves to be heard and voted on.

No Hate. No Fear. 


On January 6, SC's African-American community, Jewish community, and Interfaith community stood together in solidarity against hate in America. Our local African-American and Jewish communities have a long-established history of fighting together against injustice. In light of the most recent attacks on Jewish communities and other religious groups across the country, we came together once more to #FightHateForGood.
