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.
ADL expressed outrage over the decision by the City Council of Kavala, Greece to cancel the unveiling of a monument to Jews of the community who were murdered in the Holocaust. According to the Greek Jewish community, the town’s mayor initially objected to a Star of David engraved on the monument and asked for its removal before the monument could be officially presented. The mayor later indicated that the unveiling will occur in June.
"I look forward to future conversations and I am hopeful the district will develop both proactive and reactive strategies to address issues of harassment, intimidation, bullying and inter-group hate at the school."
