WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, as a part of National Prayer Breakfast Week, U.S. Senators Jacky Rosen (D-NV) and James Lankford (R-OK) spoke at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, discussing the need to combat anti-Semitic hate, and highlighting the work of their Senate Bipartisan Task Force for Combating Anti-Semitism.
“We must be the ones to ensure that the term ‘never again’ means never again for anyone,” said Senator Rosen. “That's why last year, Senator James Lankford and I launched the first ever Senate Bipartisan Task Force for Combating Anti-Semitism. Together, with over 30 fellow senators, from both sides of the aisle, we're taking on one of the most disturbing trends of our time.”
“The Holocaust Museum in Washington, DC, is a somber but powerful testament to the millions of lives lost in the Holocaust and our resolve to never forget the consequences of hate and apathy,” said Senator Lankford. “During this important week of prayer and unity in our nation’s capital that will culminate in the National Prayer Breakfast, I am proud to join Senator Rosen to continue to highlight the need for people everywhere to stand against anti-Semitism and pray for peace for our nation and world.”
BACKGROUND: In January, Senator Rosen, along with Senators James Lankford (R-OK), Robert Menendez (D-NJ), Kevin Cramer (R-ND), and Ben Cardin (D-MD), introduced S.Res. 481, a bipartisan resolution commemorating the 75th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz concentration camp by Allied Forces during World War II.
Last year, Senators Rosen and Lankford launched the first-ever Senate Bipartisan Task Force for Combating Anti-Semitism. Senator Lankford also spoke at Wednesday’s event at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum.
