Jewish Fraternity at Cal Poly Vandalized with Swastikas and Antisemitic Graffiti

The Alpha Epsilon Pi (AEPi) Jewish Fraternity was vandalized with swastikas and other antisemitic graffiti on Friday during Shabbat night, according to a campus wide message by the San Luis Obispo University.

“Last week, on January 27th, we honored the memory of the 6 million Jews who perished and others affected by the Holocaust, the fraternity wrote in an Instagram post on Saturday. “Unfortunately, in 2021, antisemitism is still the No. 1 cause of hate crimes in the United States,”

“We awoke to multiple swastikas and antisemitic statements spray-painted on and in front of our house,” the post continued. “This was targeted at us, as the Jewish fraternity, and we would like to let the world know we do not tolerate or condone this behavior.

“Our chapter and the entire San Luis Obispo Jewish community stand together proudly against those who are uneducated and who encourage hateful acts.”

The University released a statement here.
