Gibbs Law Group Stands with #ItStartedWithWords Campaign

May 14, 2021

Gibbs Law Group stands with the Claims Conference and other Jewish organizations working to bring awareness to anti-Semitism around the world. In the new campaign, #ItStartedWithWords, survivors reflect on the origins of the Holocaust and the toxic power of hateful language.

Gibbs Law Group supports our Jewish attorneys, staff, and clients, and we are committed to fighting against the anti-Semitic rhetoric often found on social media. For more information on this movement, see the statements from participating organizations in the #ItStartedWithWords campaign.
