Washington D.C, The Louis D. Brandeis Center for Human Rights Under Law (LDB) is pleased to welcome two new Civil Rights Legal Fellows to the staff, Hana Ma and Rachel Leach. LDB is a national non-profit civil rights legal advocacy organization committed to combating anti-Semitism in higher education.

LDB’s President & General Counsel Kenneth L. Marcus commented, “We are pleased to welcome our new team members, who join at a time when anti-Semitism is on the rise on a national scale and their skills will be put to good use. We are confident they will add to our growing list of legal accomplishments.”

Hana majored in law and English as an undergraduate student and became very interested in a variety of legal topics such as cross-border insolvency law, U.S. constitutional law and international humanitarian law. She was awarded China Oxford Scholar at Oxford and F.Y. Chang Scholar at Harvard, and is committed to inter-cultural exchanges and learning.

and Reports
Over 50% of Jewish American college students report that they experienced or witnessed anti-Semitism on their campuses during the 2013-2014 academic year. The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights has announced that campus anti-Semitism “is a serious problem which warrants further attention.” Campus anti-Semitism can include subjecting Jewish students to different treatment, harassment, violence or a hostile environment. In some cases, campus anti-Semitism is related to anti-Israel sentiment. In other cases, it is not. For most purposes, we define anti-Semitism according to the U.S. Department of State definition of anti-Semitism. .
