Press Release

HARRISON, NY – Congresswoman Nita Lowey (D-NY17/Rockland-Westchester), Ranking Member on the House Appropriations Committee and Co-Chair of the House of Representatives Bipartisan Task Force for Combating Anti-Semitism, today issued the following statement after neo-Nazi posters were discovered on the SUNY Purchase College campus:

“I was deeply troubled to learn about the discovery of neo-Nazi posters at SUNY Purchase, especially as Jews across the world came together for the Festival of Lights, a celebration of the triumph of the Jewish people over persecution.

“It is with that same resolve and courage in which the Jews prevailed that we today must confront the disturbing rise of anti-Semitism at home and abroad. Only by working together will we root out hatred and bigotry in all its forms.”
