Continuing his advocacy for fighting antisemitism, second gentleman Doug Emhoff will bring his voice to contribute to discussions at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, which started on Tuesday and will run through Friday. He also plans to speak on women’s rights and female empowerment.

Emhoff, who is Jewish and the husband of Vice President Kamala Harris, is scheduled to fly in on Thursday and connect with foreign leaders and top businesses. He will speak with such figures as Brian Moynihan, CEO of Bank of America, who is slated to lead a gathering of fellow CEOs; and Shelley Zalis, founder and CEO of the Female Quotient.

Emhoff previously announced an initiative to counter campus antisemitism following the Oct. 7 mass murder and kidnappings in Israel, perpetrated by Hamas terrorists from Gaza, coupled with the boom in pro-Palestinian university protests supporting a ceasefire with Israel–namely, a Hamas victory.

Israeli President Isaac Herzog is also going to the World Economic Forum, bringing families of victims still being held captive by Hamas in the Gaza Strip.
