#mustread Elected at age 35 after two years on the village council, Groisman, who is Jewish, spearheaded the passage of a local hate-crime ordinance in 2017 that took the U.S. State Department's 2010 guidelines on #Antisemitism and codified them 1)
... into a section of the village code entitled "Consideration of Anti-Semitism in Enforcing Laws."
At its core, the ordinance defines anti-Semitism using real-world examples so village police can more easily determine if a hate crime has occurred 2) #HateCrime
