William Donohue, president of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights, and Norman Siegel, executive director of the New York Civil Liberties Union (NYCLU), will hold a press conference today at 3:00 p.m. in Room 921 of the Catholic Center. The Catholic Center is located at 1011 First Avenue (between 55th and 56th Streets). Donohue will be joined by Bernadette Brady, vice president of the Catholic League; Siegel will be accompanied by Steven Hyman, president, board of directors of the NYCLU.

The purpose of the press conference is to address the bigotry that has surrounded the debate over the Brooklyn Museum of Art exhibit, “Sensation.” Donohue and Siegel will discuss the anti-Catholicism and the anti-Semitism that has marked this controversy.
