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.
Support the Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act
Urge your Senators to support immediate passage of the Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act, which would require federal law enforcement agencies to regularly assess domestic terrorism threats and provide training and resources to assist state, local and tribal law enforcement.
Secure our Synagogues and Schools
On January 15, 2022, we watched as yet another synagogue was attacked, a scene we have witnessed too many times before. Every American deserves to be safe in their houses of worship and religious institutions.
End Discriminatory Voting Restrictions
Urge your Senators to act now to pass the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act and the Freedom to Vote Act so that everyone in every community can freely exercise the right to vote.
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 confirmed as U.S. Special
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. 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.
