U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin Visits Milwaukee Jewish Community Center
“When we turn a blind eye to intolerance and discrimination against any community or group, we allow the things that fuel hate crimes to go unchecked.”
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin visited the Harry & Rose Samson Family Milwaukee Jewish Community Center (JCC) to join a roundtable dialogue with families, staff and local leaders. Amidst bomb threats against the Milwaukee JCC and Jewish community centers across the country, and the recent spike in anti-Semitic incidents in America, Senator Baldwin visited JCC Milwaukee to offer support for the Jewish community.
“When we turn a blind eye to intolerance and discrimination against any community or group, we allow the things that fuel hate crimes to go unchecked,” said Senator Baldwin. “Today, I stand with JCC Milwaukee, Jewish community centers across the country and the international Jewish community. Together, we must all stand up and speak out against anti-Semitism.”
This morning, Senator Baldwin introduced the JUST Act with Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Representatives Joe Crowley (D-NY) and Chris Smith (R-NJ). The bipartisan legislation will improve efforts assisting Holocaust survivors and the families of Holocaust victims by requiring the State Department to report on the progress of certain European countries on the return of—or restitution for—wrongfully confiscated or transferred Holocaust-era assets.
