Never Again Education Act Senate Briefing
On October 30, Hadassah hosted a special event on Capitol Hill to educate and advocate in favor of the Never Again Education Act and was honored to host Senator Jacky Rosen of Nevada, lead sponsor of the Senate bill, and Representative Salud Carbajal of California.
Representatives of more than two dozen Senate offices, Hadassah volunteers and the media heard from a panel of speakers about the value of teaching the Holocaust in schools today. Less than a quarter of all states have laws requiring Holocaust education. And even those with such laws leave teachers and administrators without sufficient support. The Never Again Education Act, with nearly 300 cosponsors in the House and 20 in the Senate, would establish a fund at the U.S. Department of Education to finance grants for public and private middle and high schools to help teachers develop and improve Holocaust education programs.
