"Charitable Choice" Provision is "Most Seriously Flawed Yet." ADL Calls on House Members to Vote Against H.R. 7

New York, NY, July 17, 2001 … The Anti-Defamation League (ADL), through its network of 30 regional offices and constituents across the country, is reaching out to every member of the House of Representatives urging a vote against the "charitable choice" expansion provision of the Community Solutions Act of 2001 (H.R. 7).

What is Wrong with H.R.7

"This week, the House will vote on one of the most seriously flawed versions of charitable choice legislation we have seen," said Glen A. Tobias, ADL National Chairman, and Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director. "The ‘charitable choice’ expansion provisions of H.R. 7 simply fail to provide meaningful protections to recipients.

"We urge all members of the House to reject this version, which does not go far enough to ensure that religious freedoms will be protected. ‘Charitable Choice’ is not only bad public policy; it is also bad for religion."

ADL is part of a broad coalition of civil rights, religious, education and service organizations opposing the "charitable choice" expansion elements of H.R. 7, the Community Solutions Act of 2001.

The Anti-Defamation League, founded in 1913, is the world's leading organization fighting anti-Semitism through programs and services that counteract hatred, prejudice and bigotry.
