Arkansas governor adopts IHRA definition of antisemitism

As antisemitism continues to rise nationwide, Arkansas Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders has signed into law a bill making the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) definition of antisemitism the state’s official definition of anti-Jewish bias and discrimination.

In addition to Arkansas, 27 state governments have adopted or endorsed the IHRA definition, the most widely accepted legal standard for antisemitism internationally.

More than 1,000 government entities and NGOs have endorsed the IHRA definition in recent years, including the US State Department, Education Department and Justice Department.
