Community Security

A hate crime targeting one person can make an entire community feel vulnerable. That's why ADL partners with law enforcement officials to promote security for all members of the community. No matter what type of bias is behind a hate crime—whether it is based on race, LGBTQ, religion, national origin or other factors—our goal is the same: to create and maintain welcoming and safe environments.

This work reflects our values of respect—acknowledging the equal rights of all groups—and of inclusion, which emphasize that a community’s strength comes from working together.
