Statement on US Representative Katherine Clark’s Election to Minority Whip

“The Jewish Community Relations Council of Greater Boston congratulates our long-time friend, US Representative Katherine Clark on being elected Democratic Minority Whip. Since her time as a member of the Massachusetts legislature, Congresswoman Clark has been a strong partner and ally of the Jewish community in word and in action. She has always stood up against discrimination and hate in all forms and matched her conviction for a more equitable country with substantive policy priorities. She has been a steadfast supporter of the U.S.-Israel relationship and an opponent of demonization of the Jewish state. From standing with us against antisemitism, for gun safety, and to protect and expand voting rights and preserving our democracy, Congresswoman Clark has been a clarion voice throughout our Commonwealth and our country. We look forward to her continued leadership and partnership for the benefit of all who live in our great nation.”
