Volunteers Drive Antisemitism Awareness with I-95 Billboards

Thanks to the grassroots efforts of a small group of local volunteers, a Digital Campaign was organized in December 2023 to help raise awareness about the rise of antisemitism around the world following October 7.


Sponsored by United Jewish Federation of Stamford, New Canaan, and Darien, the initiative features a series of billboards strategically located on portions of I-95 in Connecticut that display rotating ads which promote pro-Jewish and pro- Israel messages, with a focus on antisemitism.The billboard ads have received millions of impressions since circulation started and the views have extended well beyond Stamford. Both the Times of Israel and the Jewish Federation of North America have written community spotlight articles recognizing how a small group of individuals came together to make a big difference.


This initiative has been driven 100% by dedicated volunteers.


"This was a group effort that showed us that anything is possible when you have the right people there to support you," said organizer and Stamford resident, Natasha Konstorum.

“Our goal is to capture everyone’s attention with our messages...our vision is to contribute to the future where being antisemitic is considered a shameful stance."
