14 May 2020 (New York) – The Combat Anti-Semitism Movement today welcomed the approval by the United States Senate of the Never Again Education Act – A bipartisan bill providing for federal funding to expand Holocaust education nationwide.
Sacha Roytman-Dratwa, The Combat Anti-Semitism Movement Director : “By approving this Act, members of the United States Senate have transformed the phrase ‘Never Again’ into real and purposeful action. We know that the only way to fight the darkness of anti-Semitism, hatred and discrimination is to teach the light of tolerance and respect. The Never Again Education Act breathes new life into this struggle at a time when we need it the most.
We applaud the members of the Senate, from both sides of the aisle, who put their political differences aside in order to approve this important legislation. In doing so, they have sent the critical message that anti-Semitism is not a partisan issue and that people of all religions, faiths and backgrounds must unite around the goal of ending the hatred and bigotry which plagues our society.”
