Program Description

ADL fights anti-Semitism, hate, discrimination and extremism, building bridges of respect through a wide range of activities, which include:
• Fighting anti-Semitism. ADL acts as the “911” for the Jewish community, conducting extensive research and polling on anti-Semitism, combating campaigns to delegitimize Israel and helping to ensure the security of Jewish institutions and communal organizations and providing workshops to empower Jewish middle through college students to counter anti-Semitism and anti-Israel bias.
• Addressing obstacles to justice and equality and responding to discrimination against all. ADL advocates, creates and joins coalitions that eliminate discriminatory barriers to full civic participation for all Americans. The League responds to prejudice and violence against Jews and other marginalized groups, and advocates for religious freedom, civil rights, education equity, and for criminal justice reform.
• Tracking and exposing criminal activities of extremist and terrorist groups and individuals. Through our Center on Extremism, we monitor hate sites and extremist and terrorist activities, publish extensive resources and provide timely information to law enforcement agencies, leaders, officials and the public.
• Fighting all forms of hate. ADL has long been in the forefront of national and state efforts to deter and counteract hate crimes and has been a pioneer in promoting passage of strong hate crime legislation. ADL counters online hate and bullying and published a toolkit and best practices, endorsed by leading internet providers, providing effective strategies against cyberhate.
• Educating broad constituencies on countering anti-Semitism, bigotry, hate and prejudice and promoting respectful and safe schools and communities. ADL’s NO PLACE FOR HATE® programs reach approximately 1.6 million students and educators yearly, empowering schools and communities to challenge prejudice, racism and hatred through school-wide and inclusive activities. A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE® Institute workshops and school assemblies provide students, educators and families with the knowledge and skills to combat name-calling and bullying. ADL provides extensive Holocaust education professional development for educators to apply the Holocaust’s lessons to contemporary issues. Online resources include lesson plans on timely civil rights/diversity issues, bibliographies for children and webinars for educators, leaders and parents.
• Training law enforcement to combat extremism and hate crimes. The largest nonprofit providing training to law enforcement, the League offers workshops to more than 10,000 law enforcement personnel every year on topics including countering extremist/terrorist groups and individuals, hate crimes, bias, as well as on the role of police in contemporary society, examined through the lens of the Holocaust.
