RJC Applauds Passage of Never Again Education Act
Washington, D.C. — Today, the Senate passed the Never Again Education Act, a bipartisan bill to create, improve and expand Holocaust education programs for middle and high school-age students. The bill, which was passed by the House of Representatives in January, will soon go to President Trump for his signature.
Republican Jewish Coalition Executive Director Matt Brooks issued the following statement:
The men and women of the United States Senate deserve credit for setting aside their differences to clear the way for swift and unanimous passage of this much-needed legislation. We are especially grateful to Senator Kevin Cramer and Senator Jacky Rosen who led the way on the bill. We are also thankful to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and dozens of Senators on both sides of the aisle who came together to act on growing concerns that today's young Americans are not learning what they need to know about the Holocaust.
RJC is proud to have contributed to the effort by leading Jewish organizations to secure passage of the Never Again Education Act. Our involvement was spurred by strong leadership from within our organization's Board of Directors, animated by the conviction that improving Holocaust education must be a national priority. President Trump has spoken of the need for education about the Holocaust and we know he will come through for Jewish Americans yet again by signing the Never Again Education Act into law.
