At ADL, we monitor extremism and misinformation regularly as part of our work fighting hate. As is the case with many legacy organizations, there is a fair amount of misinformation spread about who ADL is and the reality of the work we do. To help stop the spread of this misinformation, below are responses to some of the most egregious claims.
Each year, ADL’s Center on Extremism tracks murders perpetrated by all types of extremists. In 2018, every single extremist killing — from Pittsburgh to Parkland — had a link to right-wing extremism. This report provides key insights into the crimes, including motivations behind these violent attacks.
