ADL is recommended for schools, communities and individuals of all ages who would like to guide youth and adults to reject biases, appreciate differences and create welcoming environments, by using ADL law enforcement and communities with the information they need to stay safe from extremist threats of every kind, incorporating ADL Israel advocacy from campuses to the worlds of politics and diplomacy, and contribute to the world’s leading organization fighting antisemitism.
In 1913, ADL was founded on Jewish values that inform its work, how it operates and the changes it seeks in the world. It has always meant stopping antisemitism and defending the Jewish people. Today, it also means fighting threats to our very democracy, including cyberhate, bullying, bias in schools and in the criminal justice system, terrorism, hate crimes, coercion of religious minorities, and contempt for anyone who is different.

There are educational benefits to teaching about the diverse religious traditions and cultures, but schools should be thoughtful about being inclusive, respectful and equitable.
