Who We Are

We protect the Jewish people and secure justice and fair treatment to all.

Who we are

 

We are activists, educators and experts. We fight anti-Semitism and all forms of hate. We advocate for a safe and secure democratic Jewish State of Israel and combat efforts to delegitimize it. We help shape laws locally and nationally, and develop groundbreaking model legislation. We work with students to respect inclusion and to challenge bias and bullying. We train law enforcement officers about extremism, terrorism and hate crimes.

We never give up trying to build a better world inspired by our democratic sense of unity:  There is no them – only us.


Founded in 1913, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) is our nation’s premier civil rights/human relations organization. We have a distinguished history of reminding the world just how tenuous civil rights are and we mobilize people to engage in reasonable discourse as together we find solutions to serve our diverse society.

A nonprofit, nonpartisan organization with supporters and partners throughout the United States and around the world, ADL is rooted in Jewish values. We speak up for those whose voices are not always heard. Our network of more than two dozen regional offices nationwide and an office in Jerusalem are on the ground, organizing and galvanizing grassroots support around the most pressing issues of the day.
