Our Letter to Rep. Andy Levin

Wednesday, March 20, 2019 - 4:35pm

We would like to share with you a letter that was sent to Michigan Congressman Andy Levin. Despite being Jewish himself, Congressman Levin strongly opposed naming Congresswoman Ilhan Omar in the House anti-hate resolution and explicitly condemning her anti-Semitic comments.

The letter to Rep. Levin is only one of many we sent to elected officials to describe the profound impact that Rep. Omar's statements had on the Jewish community and to express our disappointment with the reluctance of her colleagues to directly condemn those remarks.

No one should give bigotry a pass, even when it comes from one's own party ranks.
