Mainstream Coalition Stands Against Antisemitism

Mainstream Coalition stands against ideological and religious extremism in all of its forms. Beginning with our bipartisan and interfaith founders, we embrace the meeting of diverse minds, experiences, and religions as we work together to respect the rights, beliefs, and freedoms of all Kansans. 

In explicit action and words or the subconscious reinforcement of negative stereotypes, we have increasingly witnessed the targeting of those of Jewish heritage and faith. With the recent opening of “Auschwitz. Not Long ago. Not far away.,” at Union Station Kansas City, we take this opportunity to reaffirm our anti-racism position and acknowledge our responsibility to fight racism in the policies and institutions that perpetuate it, and to listen and learn from those that experience racism. 

Mainstream Coalition believes that antisemitism is wrong, undermines our democracy and safety of our communities, and harms our neighbors, friends, and family. To stand against all forms of discrimination, and specifically antisemitism, the Mainstream Coalition adopts the following working definition by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance: “Antisemitism is a certain perception of Jews, which may be expressed as hatred toward Jews. Rhetorical and physical manifestations of antisemitism are directed toward Jewish or non-Jewish individuals and/or their property, toward Jewish community institutions and religious facilities.” (learn more)

We invite you to join us in this work and to do more than vote for the change you want to see in your community.
