Speaker Heastie Statement on Holocaust Remembrance Day

Today my colleagues and I in the Assembly Majority passed a resolution commemorating Holocaust Remembrance Day and the 76th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz.

Each year, this day serves as a stark reminder of what can happen when corrosive hate is allowed to take root in our communities. My colleagues and I strongly condemn anti-Semitism, racism or any form of intolerance.

We are hopeful that the Biden-Harris administration will help put an end to the dangerous hate-based, anti-Semitic and racially motivated attacks that have proliferated across our nation over the last few years.

As always, my colleagues and I remain committed to moving New York forward and ensuring that our communities are safe for everyone.
