New York, NY, August 9, 2022 ... ADL (Anti-Defamation League) issued the following statement today on International Day of the World's Indigenous People:
"As we observe International Day of the World's Indigenous Peoples, ADL reflects on our relationship with Indigenous people and organizations across North America. The Papal visit in Canada last week underscored the deep and painful history North American Indigenous Peoples have endured and the work yet to be done to secure justice. At the same time, First Nations, Native Americans and those Indigenous to North America have never ceased their resiliency. Today is a day to celebrate their strength along with their continued contributions to the beautiful fabric of society. Today, ADL recommits to supporting North American Indigenous Peoples as a core part of our mission to secure justice and fair treatment to all."
