The Challenge

It is not acceptable to be an antisemite in America Today. This is an enormous change from ADL's early years, when anti-Semitism was a part of daily life-limiting where Jew could live, attend school, work and feel safe. 

Consider these markers or change: According to ADL's latest annual Audit of Anti-Semitic Incidents, the number in the U.S. declined recently by 13%. In 2012, Emory University apologized for blatant Anti-Semitism that took place at it's dental school from 1948 to 1960, which the ADL helped expose.

The Solution

ADL fights anti-semitism by engaging in policy work, educating and training the professionals stopping hate everyday in the class and on our streets, and participating in research and investigatory work to monitor extremist groups, among other efforts.
