HEF Statement after Charlottesville

As an organization that advances education about the Holocaust, the Holocaust Educational Foundation of Northwestern University strongly condemns the recent white supremacist terrorist attack in Charlottesville. We call out the lack of leadership from the highest levels, which has fostered an environment that continues to embolden antisemitic, racial, ethnic, and gender-based hatred and discrimination. As part of the hard work of rooting out bigotry in our daily lives, we encourage all to speak out against racist extremism, oppose policies that strip recent civil rights gains, and examine the incipient bias that permeates our society.
