State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli Statement on Antisemitism and New York's Response

October 31, 2023

New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli issued the following statement regarding antisemitism and New York's response:

"The antisemitic threats and incidents we’ve seen on college campuses, on city streets, and online have no place in our society. Antisemitism, Islamophobia and hate directed at any community must be denounced in all their forms. We cannot and will not tolerate intimidation in any community or at any institution.

"I fully support Governor Kathy Hochul's bold and smart actions today to protect Jewish and Muslim New Yorkers. I have confidence that Judge Lippman’s review of the City University of New York’s policies and procedures related to antisemitism and discrimination will help protect Jewish students and faculty.

"We stand with one voice in saying hate has no place in New York."
