The Jewish Voice Welcomes Passage Of Never Again Education Act
The Jewish Voice on Wednesday issued a statement welcoming Congressional passage of the Never Again Education Act, which passed by unanimous consent. The bill had previously advanced through the House of Representatives with overwhelming support and now heads to President Trump’s desk for his signature.
The Never Again Education Act supports Holocaust education across the country by bolstering the already expansive educational resources at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM).
The success of The Never Again Education Act would not have been possible without the exceptional leadership of Representatives Carolyn Maloney and Elise Stefanik and Senators Jacky Rosen, Kevin Cramer, Marco Rubio and Richard Blumenthal for spearheading the bills in the House and the Senate; Senators Lisa Murkowski and Joe Manchin for their support as chairwoman and ranking member of the Senate Committee on Energy & Natural Resources.
“Combatting hate and intolerance must always be a priority and I’m glad that the Senate agrees. Passing this bill by unanimous consent today sends a strong message that the Congress is overwhelmingly united in combatting antisemitism and hate through education. Children are not born with hate in their hearts, it is up to us to make sure they never learn it,” said Rep. Maloney.
