Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto signed on to the American Jewish Committee’s Mayors United Against Antisemitism joint initiative with The U.S. Conference of Mayors.

“We, the undersigned Mayors, express our deep conviction that antisemitism is not only an attack on Jews but an assault on the core values of any democratic and pluralistic society,” the statement reads. “In a world of global communications, where antisemitic ideas spread rapidly, a concerted and principled response is required to raise awareness, to educate, and to ensure decency prevails.”

The initiative statement affirms a core set of principles, including the condemnation of anti-Jewish hatred in all forms, and pledges to advance the values of respectful coexistence.

More than 250 mayors across the country have signed on to the statement. PJC
