ADL's comprehensive approach combines short termactions to denounce anti-Semitism with long-term education programs to change hearts and minds:
We expose and condemn anti-Semitism in the Arab and Islamic media, in Europe, on college
campuses, and anywhere else it occurs.
We meet with U.S. and world leaders, getting them to acknowledge the seriousness of the
problem and act on it.
We monitor anti-Semitic and other extremist groups and individuals, sharing our findings with
the public, law enforcement and the media.
We help train law enforcement agencies such as the FBI and local police departments to
effectively respond to hate crimes and violent extremists.
Our A WORLD OF DIFFERENCEŽ Institute helps students, educators and caregivers at all levels
learn to reject bigotry and respect diversity.
We provide practical, effective advice on security concerns to synagogues and other Jewish
We develop and implement programs and policies to produce change, including anti-bias
education in Europe and the Bearing Witness program for Catholic school teachers in the U.S.
We're the leading civil rights/human relations agency - ensuring church-state separation,
civil liberties and respect for difference - all of which help make sure every one of us gets
respect and fair treatment.
We work with other ethnic and religious communities to stand against anti-Semitism and
all forms of hatred and bigotry.
