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.
