Emerging in 1913 out of the historical fight against anti-Semitism, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) works to eradicate all forms of bigotry and hate and support democratic pluralism around the world. This effort includes a serious commitment to the security of the state of Israel. The organization focuses on information initiatives that help law enforcement agencies combat hate crimes and education programs that foster understanding instead of prejudice. The ADL encourages religious pluralism by fostering interfaith dialogue and supporting religious liberty for all; promoting the continued separation of church and state is a key part of this endeavor. Other ADL programs focus on Hispanic-Jewish relations, the next generation of Jewish leaders, anti-Semitism on the internet, and lessons from the Holocaust. The ADL has 30 regional and satellite offices in the Untied States and abroad.
