“With the rapid rise of campus anti-Semitism and anti-Israeli incitement, which has reached epidemic proportions across the United States, the Louis D. Brandeis Center is an idea whose time has come. It is fulfilling a vital function in protecting the civil rights of Jewish students throughout the nation.”
Sarah N. Stern
President, Endowment for Middle East Truth
"There is a critical need for an organization such as the Louis D. Brandeis Center to give students and faculty who suffer harassment and intimidation a place to fight back against administrative silence in the face of hate and bigotry.”
