Washington, D.C. (March 23, 2022) — Democratic Majority for Israel Co-Chairs Ann Lewis and Todd Richman and President and CEO Mark Mellman issued the following statement today:

“We are heartbroken to learn of the passing of Dr. Madeleine Albright. As our nation’s top diplomat, she broke barriers and fought for human rights at home and abroad. A refugee from Nazi Germany and Soviet communism, she was tough, courageous, and a clear-speaking believer in democracy. Her moral leadership and courage will be an inspiration for generations to come. We’re indebted to her for her service to America.

“We send our deepest condolences to her family and loved ones. May her memory be for a blessing.”
