I’ve co-signed this letter as a member of the Black, Asian and Jewish Alliance (BAJA), alongside Rachel Shabi (journalist), Professor Yasmin Alibhai-Brown (columnist and author), Professor Francesca Klug (human rights academic and activist), Dr Omar Khan (director, The Runnymede Trust, Simon Woolley (director, OBV), Radhika Bynon (director of programmes, The Young Foundation), Michael Segalov (journalist), Dr Edie Friedman (director, Jewish Council for Racial Equality).
It opens by saying:
“The Labour party’s adoption of the full IHRA definition of antisemitism (Report, 5 September) should not be the end but the start of renewed efforts to engage with British Jews and tackle antisemitism. It should also be a moment for every organisation in Britain to address antisemitism, and to link that work to tackling all forms of racism. While forms of racism differ, the two principles of directly engaging the communities affected, and of focusing on a definition that leads to action, are universal ones.”
