WASHINGTON, D.C. — Following an anti-Semitic act in which a sign at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in Cincinnati was vandalized with a swastika, U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) released the following statement:
“This display of anti-Semitic vandalism and intimidation is reprehensible and has no place in Ohio. I am heartened to see the Cincinnati community rally around Hebrew Union College, and I encourage all Ohioans to stand against hate and injustice wherever they see it.”
Since January of 2007, U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown – a champion of middle-class families in the Senate – has held more than 250 community roundtables across Ohio’s 88 counties with students, local leaders and business owners, entrepreneurs and educators, workers and families to find ways to rebuild our economy.
Described as “Congress’ leading proponent of American manufacturing,” Brown is working with the Obama Administration on the creation of a national manufacturing policy that would invest in manufacturing innovation, strengthen our component supply chain, connect workers with emerging industries, and align our trade policies to promote our national interests.
He is also working with Ohio’s universities, entrepreneurs, and community stakeholders to use Ohio’s resources to create new jobs in high-growth industries and make Ohio a national leader in clean energy manufacturing.
