Remember - Registration fees fund the Walk Against Hate, while additional donations allow ADL continue our fight against bigotry and hatred. In 2017 alone, with your support:
- Our local No Place for Hate® program continued to expand with 225 schools and organizations enrolled in the tri-state area with an impact of approximately 300,000 students.
- Our regional A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE® Institute program focused on challenging bias and bigotry and trained over 900 students, teachers and community members, with an impact on tens of thousands of individuals in our region.
- ADL staff planned and implemented 33 workshops helping over 800 middle, high school and college students understand the challenge of both anti-Semitism and anti-Israel bias.
- Over 350 federal, state and local law enforcement professionals from the tri-state area were briefed on white supremacists, home-grown terrorists, and other extremists at a law enforcement summit in October.
