Alienum phaedrum torquatos nec eu, vis detraxit periculis ex, nihil expetendis in mei. Mei an pericula euripidis, hinc partem.


Please consider this special appeal from Veterans for Peace, Santa Feans for Justice in Palestine (SFJP) and Jewish Voice for Peace  to inform people and potentially allied organizations of why this definition unconstitutionally violates our First Amendment rights to speak about Israel and Palestine and get them to sign the petition below under #2

THE ISSUE — TELL Governor Lujan Grisham that Criticism of Israel IS NOT Antisemitism!

Jewish Voice for Peace–Albuquerque and Santa Feans for Justice in Palestine call on
Governor Lujan Grisham to rescind Executive Order 2022-118, which makes the
International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance Working Definition of Antisemitism
and its examples of contemporary antisemitism official state policy. While antisemitism is very
real and present, the Executive Order wrongfully conflates criticism of Israel with antisemitism
and dangerously threatens free speech and civil liberties.

1. May we cite your organization as opposed to governmental adoption of the IHRA definition
and examples when we contact the governor and legislators (if legislation is introduced)?

2. Will you distribute our online petition to your members and recommend that they sign it?

3. Will you help us recruit individual members of your organization to assist us in this
campaign—this may be as minimal as making a few phone calls or sending a few emails to
actively help us organize the campaign?
4. Who would be the contact person for your organization?

Zoom with us on January 8th @ 3:00 pm to learn more about what you can do.
