A Statement from the ORT America National President

ORT America condemns the racism and white supremacist views of those who marched with torches in Charlottesville this past weekend. Their vile ideology, words and provocative actions have no place in American society and our land of diversity. There is no moral equivalence, and we share the concern of our fellow citizens troubled by this display of hatred, intolerance and anti-Semitism.

The mission of ORT is to further education, particularly in disadvantaged communities and for those at risk. ORT programs emphasize tolerance, understanding, compassion and enlightenment as the way to a brighter future, and counteract bigotry in our society.

Larry Kadis
National President, ORT America
