Security and Education Resources in the Wake of Charleston, SC AME Church Shooting and Church Burnings

  • June 19, 2015

ADL has many resources that may be helpful to different faith communities who are feeling vulnerable and in need of better security in the wake of the horror perpetrated at the Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, SC and the recent spate of suspicious fires pertrated against Black Churches. 

Because of ADL’s commitment to and expertise in Jewish institutional security, we have created resources for all faith communities on issues of safety and security, while helping institutions to maintain open and welcoming environments.

These should be useful for any communal organization in the wake of these events.
