The Lenny Zakim Fund denounces the recent surge of anti-Semitic acts.

Our founder, Lenny Zakim, was always among the first to speak out against violence aimed at any and all marginalized groups.

The Fund continues to stand in solidarity against prejudices of all kinds.

We condemn all acts of violence against humanity.
