Jersey City Jewish students should not have to be concerned that the officials running their schools view them as “brutes” or deserving of violent attacks, but that’s just what former Jersey City Board of Education member Joan Terrell-Paige did.
Terrell-Paige made brazenly anti-Semitic comments in response to the December 10th, 2019 shooting at a kosher market in Greenville, NJ. Two shooters killed a police officer and three others in the attack which authorities said was “fueled by both anti-Semitism and anti-law enforcement beliefs.”
NTC advocates sent nearly 10,000 emails to the Jersey City Board of Education, and after our campaign started, Jersey City mayor Fulop called out Terrell-Paige’s antisemitism.
NTC is proud to see our efforts having an impact, and we will continue confronting bigotry and tolerance hypocrisy.
