California lawmakers pass resolution to oppose anti-Semitism, other forms of discrimination

California lawmakers passed a resolution Thursday to take a stand against anti-Semitism and other types of discrimination.

“History is going to judge us,” said Sen. Joel Anderson (R-Alpine), who supported the resolution. “Let’s not be on the wrong side.”

The resolution came in response to a rise in anti-Semitic incidents across the country, lawmakers said. Verbal discrimination, cemetery desecrations and targeted assaults are among the actions it opposes.

Resolutions that touch on current events with national interest are generally less common in the California Legislature.
