Anti-BDS and Anti-Hate Resolutions Pass

On Monday evening, June 19, the Westchester County Board of Legislators voted 16-1 in favor of the Anti-BDS (Boycott, Divestment & Sanctions) Movement Resolution and Anti-Hate Resolution. We thank the Board of Legislators for proposing and overwhelmingly passing these resolutions and thank their Committee on Legislation that voted in favor of bringing it from committee to the full Board of Legislators.
