The National Lawyers Guild of Los Angeles (NLG-LA) is troubled and disturbed by the recent acts of antisemitism that have appeared in the Los Angeles area. The distribution of fliers and other materials that spread antisemitic conspiracy theories and the display that appeared over the 405 freeway are horrifying, disgusting, and a representation of the propagation of white supremacy. These actions have been spurred on by the words of certain celebrities and influential media personalities. Words have power and we also condemn those who are using that power to divide our communities and encourage hate against our neighbors.
NLG-LA stands in solidarity with the Jewish community. There is never an excuse for antisemitism, and we support those who are taking action to fight it.
