By LuAnne Schendel May 2019

From redefinEd, 5/30/2019:

“Anti-Semitism bill: From Israel, Gov. Ron DeSantis signs a bill that bans anti-Semitic speech in the state’s K-12 public schools and universities. H.B. 741 adds religion to race, ethnicity, national origin, gender, marital status or disability as protected classes when it comes to discrimination against students and employees. Statements considered anti-Semitic under the bill include “making mendacious, dehumanizing, demonizing, or stereotypical allegations” about Jews or “the power of Jews as a collective,” such as “the myth about a world Jewish conspiracy or of Jews controlling the media, economy, government or other societal institutions.” News Service of Florida.
