Your voice is needed now! Your opinion matters and can shape the work of legislators on the federal, state and local levels. ADL’s bipartisan advocacy efforts aim to persuade all of our elected officials to join us in working toward our mission, “to stop the defamation of the Jewish people and to secure justice and fair treatment to all.” When we take action together, we are stronger.
Take the Pledge to Fight Antisemitism and Urge Your Elected Officials to Join You
ADL’s 2022 Audit of Antisemitic Incidents shows an alarming rise of incidents of antisemitism, with a total of 3,697 incidents in the U.S. recorded by ADL, an increase of 36 percent compared to 2021. Sign the Pledge to Fight Antisemitism and commit to being an ally of the Jewish community, publicly condemning acts of antisemitism, advocating for policy solutions and encourage your elected officials to do the same.
Support Holocaust Education in all 50 States
In a time of heightened antisemitic incidents and attitudes in the U.S., the need to teach the history and lessons of the Holocaust could not be more urgent. Join ADL in fighting for the passage of the Holocaust Education and Antisemitism Lessons (HEAL) Act to ensure current and future generations across the country learn about the Holocaust and the importance of confronting antisemitism and hate.
Tell Congress to Act Against Domestic Terrorism
New data from ADL Center on Extremism shows alarming trends in extremist violence and increased mass killings by extremists. We cannot accept this as the new norm. Join us and urge your U.S. Representative to support the Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act to ensure the federal government has every tool at its disposal to protect our communities.
Call on the U.S. Government to Combat Antisemitism
Jews do not feel safe, and recent deadly attacks in Pittsburgh, Poway, Jersey City, Monsey, and Colleyville highlight the need for immediate action. Join ADL in demanding the U.S. government musters all available resources to counter threats against the Jewish people.
Urge Crack Down on Extremist Fundraising
While internet crowdfunding is typically used to support important causes — such as charities and start-ups — extremists exploit crowdfunding platforms to finance their hateful activities. Join ADL in urging President Biden to follow through on his commitment to crack down on extremist fundraising.
Secure Our Synagogues and Schools
Pittsburgh, Poway, Colleyville — these tragedies are burned into our memories. Every American deserves to be safe in their houses of worship and religious institutions.
Urge Internet Companies to Unite against Hate
Internet services and service providers make it possible for us to go online and do all the things we love to do, like watch videos, play games and shop. Unfortunately, extremists who are organizing online also use these services. Join ADL in demanding a whole-of-internet approach and urging internet companies to stop doing business with extremists and to unite against hate.
Urge Amazon to Stop Profiting off Antisemitism
If you were to type "Hebrew" into the Amazon search bar, almost every result will include an iteration of the antisemitic film Hebrews to Negros. Promoting vicious and hateful propaganda in the name of increasing profit sales makes our communities less safe. Join ADL in demanding that Amazon stops giving a platform to antisemitism and commits to stop selling hate products.
ADL's COMBAT Plan offers a comprehensive, six-part framework for leaders at every level of government to condemn antisemitism, authorize and improve hate crimes laws, stop the spread of antisemitism online and protect Jewish institutions often targeted by antisemitic acts.
ADL's PROTECT Plan aims to address increasing domestic terrorism driven by domestic violent extremism while safeguarding civil rights and civil liberties. Domestic terrorism is a threat that impacts everyone.
ADL's REPAIR Plan offers a comprehensive framework for platforms and policymakers to take meaningful action to decrease online hate and extremism. REPAIR addresses many manifestations of online hate, including online harassment, antisemitism, racism, extremist disinformation and domestic terrorism.
Thanks to the actions of the ADL community and advocates like you, we are having a measurable impact in the fight against hate. We must continue to act.
Non-Profit Security Grant Program
Due in large part to the efforts of the ADL community, President Biden requested $360 million in funding be added to the federal budget for security for nonprofits, including houses of worship and religious institutions. Volunteers nationwide mobilized over 4,000 emails to push elected officials to support this critical effort.
Dr. Deborah Lipstadt Confirmation
ADL supporters sent thousands of emails and made thousands of phone calls to members of the Senate, took part in virtual lobbying visits and published letters to the editor in key states in support of Dr. Lipstadt's confirmation as U.S. Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Antisemitism. Our government affairs professionals led an effective coalition of Jewish organizations who made sure that lawmakers knew how important this position is, and how eminently qualified Dr. Lipstadt is.
