We Stand WITH Our Jewish Neighbors and AGAINST Antisemitic Racism
As a result of the antisemitic leafleting that has occurred in several Kenosha neighborhoods on over a dozen occasions since last December, CUSH is forming a Rapid Response Team to remove the offending leaflets when they are dropped. Doing so will lessen their intended impact on the targets and on our community. The organizing team has consulted the Kenosha Police Department in this effort, and we are following the recommendations that they have shared.
When leaflets are dropped, this team will mobilize to that site to remove them. Captains are needed to be on call one day each week. Team Volunteers will be notified by a captain when a rapid response is needed. As stated, CUSH has consulted the Kenosha Police Department in this effort, and we are following their recommendations. Since all leafleting has occurred in the early morning, Rapid Response team members will most likely be needed to respond quite early.
In addition, the CUSH Rapid Response Team will be distributing signs to neighbors in targeted areas to display in their windows as a sign of solidarity with their Jewish neighbors throughout Kenosha. The back of the sign gives instructions about what to do if you experience leafleting in your neighborhood.

We, at CUSH, are grateful for this community that stands against racism in all its forms along with us.
