Never Again Education Act

The JCRC is proud to report that as of May 13, 2020, both the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate have overwhelmingly passed – and on a bipartisan basis – the Never Again Education Act (H.R. 943 / S. 2085), which would provide $10 million over five years to fund Holocaust education in American schools!

As part of an effort led by the Jewish Federations of North America and Hadassah, the Jewish Federation of Greater New Orleans was one of over 300 organizations from every state to have signed on to this letter to the House in April 2019 advocating for the bill’s passage.

Both Rep. Cedric Richmond, D-L.A., and Rep. Steve Scalise, R-L.A., voted in favor in the House, and in the Senate the bill passed by unanimous consent. Thank you to our members of Congress for supporting this important effort!
