021022CT00049WAUKEGAN - In response to recent anti-Semitic vandalism in the Waukegan, Senator Adriane Johnson released the following statement:
“I am disappointed and disheartened at the recent vandalism that occurred at the Am Echod cemetery. Vandalism and hate crimes fail to contribute any good to our community, it only tears us apart.

“Waukegan and the surrounding areas are a proud home to many of our Jewish family and friends. No hate speech, hate crime, or vandalism of any sort will be taken lightly. I will continue to stand to amplify the voices of those who continue to face these atrocious attacks on their religious beliefs. The hate must stop.”
