Statement Regarding Israel

October 8, 2023

By Juliet Hidalgo

The Los Angeles Community College District (LACCD) strongly condemns the devastating terrorist attacks in Israel. The Los Angeles region has the second largest Jewish population outside of Israel with many of our LACCD family worried about the health and safety of loved ones in Israel.

Attacks like this leave a wake of painful and immense suffering and harm to innocent people. It also undermines efforts to achieve peaceful coexistence and resolution of conflicts no matter where they occur.

Our healing thoughts are with the victims and their families, and we hope for a peaceful and just resolution and an end to any activity that disrupts peace and stability.
