Wasserman Schultz Statement on Passover

“Sundown marks the beginning of Passover, a holiday of reflection, storytelling, and a recommitment to the values of freedom and justice.

As my family, friends, and I sit down for the traditional Seder, we remind ourselves that many in our own community and country still yearn for equality. We must be mindful that, throughout the world, people of every faith and background are traveling great lengths and taking great risks in their quest for freedom. I hope my colleagues in Congress will take this Passover message to heart: ‘You shall not oppress the stranger, for you were once strangers in the land of Egypt.’

Whatever you and your family are celebrating this weekend, I wish you a meaningful and memorable holiday.”
