The Honorable Jason S. Miyares, Attorney General of Virginia, will share takeaways from his March trip to Poland and Israel in a statewide online conversation.

The bipartisan trip spearheaded by Attorney General Miyares, co-led by North Carolina Attorney General Josh Stein, included 14 attorneys general from across the country.

The delegation visited Auschwitz with one of the foremost Holocaust scholars in the United States where they discussed the historical rise of antisemitism in the 1930s and 1940s, and how it was able to thrive in progressive European cities. During their visit to Israel, they met with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs where they learned about the background and impact of the global boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) movement, and visited with Israel’s President, Isaac Herzog and senior advisor to the Prime Minister, Ambassador Ron Dermer.

The Attorney General returned to the Commonwealth with renewed determination to combat the scourge of antisemitism through his newly created Antisemitism Task Force.

Learn more about Attorney General Miyares’ trip and how his experience will impact the fight against hate in the Commonwealth during this online event, which is open to the entire community. Pre-registration is required by May 26. A link to join the conversation will be provided to those who register.
