On Monday, March 29th, University of Minnesota's student body was confirmed to have passed a resolution adopting the IHRA definition of antisemitism. With this vote, the students have ensured that all student voices, including those of Jewish students and allies, would be heard.

This would not be possible without the bravery and leadership shown by Jewish students and allies. ACF applauds the passing of this referendum and we hope that other campuses continue to follow suit. We call on the greater UMN community to stand with Jewish students and their allies on campus.
