94 Maidens author quoted in Congressional Press Release! It’s official! Huge step toward mandating Holocaust education nationally!

I am extremely proud to announce that Congressman Brendan Boyle, Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick, Congressman Ted Deutch, & Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen have co-sponsored a Bipartisan Congressional Resolution supporting mandatory nationwide Holocaust education. Attached is the press release formally introducing the legislation. The idea for the resolution, authored by Congressman Boyle, evolved out of a letter I was drafting with Congressman Deutch. There are five people quoted in this congressional press release. Four are the co-sponsors of the resolution, and the fifth is me! Congressman Boyle even cited my Newsweek article! It’s been a good week! I’m going to Washington D.C. next week for meetings at the Capitol and I’m looking forward to having the opportunity to thank each one of them personally. Is it proper to hug a Congressperson? If so, they better brace for it. In the effort to mandate Holocaust education, this is huge and I’m a hugger!!! 🙂 ~ Rhonda Fink-Whitman, author of 94 Maidens & director/producer/host of The Mandate Video
