Alums for Campus Fairness (ACF) is outraged and appalled by the recent antisemitic incident at the University of Southern California (USC), in which a window next to the entry door of the USC Hillel building was shattered. ACF will not stand by as Jewish spaces at our alma mater are targeted.

On Monday, August 23, the vandalism occurred while the USC Hillel building was unoccupied. We can not and will not tolerate vandalism of Jewish spaces.

ACF will continue to be actively engaged in taking action in response to this incident. We call on President Carol L. Folt and the USC Department of Public Safety to take necessary and appropriate action moving forward that ensures the safety of the campus Jewish community.
