ADL Mourns Loss of Former U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid

New York, NY, December 29, 2021… ADL (the Anti-Defamation League) issued the following statement on the passing of former U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid:

ADL mourns the loss of former U.S. Senator Harry Reid, a fierce champion in the fight against hatred, bigotry and antisemitism, and previous recipient of ADL Nevada’s prestigious Americanism Award. We extend our sincerest thoughts to his wife Landra and their entire family.

As Senator Reid once said, “We can no longer look the other way. We need to recognize, acknowledge and address this menace and make clear that we will not allow antisemitism to spread its poisonous roots throughout our country.”

These words have never rung truer. May his memory be a blessing and may his dedication to fighting hate continue to inspire us all.

ADL is the world’s leading anti-hate organization. Founded in 1913 in response to an escalating climate of antisemitism and bigotry, its timeless mission is to protect the Jewish people and to secure justice and fair treatment for all. Today, ADL continues to fight all forms of hate with the same vigor and passion. A global leader in exposing extremism, delivering anti-bias education, and fighting hate online, ADL is the first call when acts of antisemitism occur. ADL’s ultimate goal is a world in which no group or individual suffers from bias, discrimination or hate.
