Lawfare Project ‘legal war room’ to support hate-crime victims 

“We have a clear vision of how to succeed, through strategic legal action that imposes real consequences on Jew-hatred,” said Brooke Goldstein, the project’s founder and executive director.

Since Hamas’s terrorist attacks on Israel on Oct. 7, the Lawfare Project has heard from hundreds of Jews, including students and professors at major universities and colleges, who have been targeted with antisemitism, including violent physical attacks.

The legal network, which protects Jewish civil and human rights, has therefore created a “legal war room,” which “is currently focused on multiple colleges across the country, and on implementing systemic change through comprehensive civil-rights strategies, including litigation,” the project announced.

“We have a crucial, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to seize the momentum in the fight against antisemitism and unite, as a community, to work collaboratively in the interests of justice and equality,” said Brooke Goldstein, founder and executive director of the project.

The “war room” will include 600 lawyers worldwide and fight antisemitism “wherever it occurs, both on and off campus,” the Lawfare Project stated.
