Statement From A.G. Schneiderman On The 50th Anniversary Of President Kennedy’s Assassination

NEW YORK – Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman released the following statement on today’s solemn remembrance of President John F. Kennedy’s assassination in Dallas, Texas 50 years ago:

“Fifty years ago today, our nation lost an inspirational leader who embodied the hope, optimism and values of our nation. President John F. Kennedy represented the quintessential American belief that we are better as a nation when we work together to accomplish great things. Together with the civil rights and progressive activists of his time, President Kennedy worked to promote a vision of America that grows more just, more equal and more prosperous with each generation. Today, those of us who pursue the same goals should pause to remember the great leader he was and renew our fight to bring that same vision to New Yorkers and the people of the United States.”
