SCBWI’s April Powers Admits ‘Horrific Antisemitism’ Played Part in Her Resignation

In it, she admits the ordeal has been terrifying, and there is more to the story, including “horrific unmasked antisemitism”:

Speaking of which, Razan Abdin-Adnani, the antisemite whose harassment seems to have led to April’s resignation, has told her Twitter followers to report me:

I am certainly not expecting a Christmas Card from her.
