ADL’s Making a Difference Award was presented to Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation in recognition of its work championing positive social change. The award was presented at the League’s No Place For Hate ceremony in New York City where students and educators from 85 schools across the New York area were recognized for their extraordinary efforts to combat bullying, bigotry and bias.
In the wake of the desecration of a community burial ground and Holocaust memorial in Lynn, Massachusetts, ADL offered a reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the vandalism. ADL said the act of hate is “an affront to people of all faiths.”
“It takes an extremely one-sided approach to a complex problem, and rather than really engage in peaceful protest, it’s a disingenuous and prejudiced movement.”
Seth Brysk, ADL Central Pacific Regional Director, from an interview with the San Francisco j. Weekly on the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement on college campuses.
Mr. Foxman writes about a recent reunion in Israel with several Ethiopian-Israelis who participated in ADL’s Children of the Dream program, meaningful anecdotes from the visit, as well as concerns over recent tensions between the community and law enforcement.
