ADL (the Anti-Defamation League) is a leading anti-hate organization. Founded in 1913 in response to an escalating climate of anti-Semitism and bigotry, its timeless mission is to protect the Jewish people and to secure justice and fair treatment for all. Today, ADL continues to fight all forms of hate with the same vigor and passion. ADL is the first call when acts of anti-Semitism occur. A global leader in exposing extremism, delivering anti-bias education and fighting hate online, ADL’s ultimate goal is a world in which no group or individual suffers from bias, discrimination or hate. ADL’s Southeast Regional Office serves Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, and Tennessee.
We employ a multi-faceted educational, community relations and legal approach to combat anti-Semitism and hate of all kinds, promote diversity, and build bridges of understanding between communities.
ADL leads the way in creating respectful, inclusive and civil environments. Our anti-bias education programs operate through ADL’s A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE® Institute and are designed to empower people to recognize and address personal and institutional prejudice and discrimination, and actively promote prejudice-free, inclusive schools and communities in which individual differences are respected and valued. Our programming is implemented in over 200 schools across the region.
