Westport Delegation Releases Statement on Antisemitic Flyers Found in Local Neighborhood

Today, state Senator Ceci Maher and state Representatives Jonathan Steinberg and Dominique Johnson released the following statement on recent reports of antisemitic flyers found in Westport.

“We vehemently condemn another incident of hateful propaganda in our community. We have no tolerance for hate speech against any person or group, based on race, creed, religion, sexual orientation, country of origin, gender identity, or any other affiliation. A hateful action against one Westporter is an attack on us all and we are grateful for the Westport Police and ADL for their vigilance as this incident is investigated.”

According to reports, the antisemitic flyers were discovered last week in driveways in the impacted neighborhood. This most recent finding follows a disturbing trend of flyers promoting white supremacy, racism, homophobia and other bigoted causes being discovered across the state.
