About the Anti-Defamation League
The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) fights anti-Semitism and all forms of bigotry in the U.S. and abroad through information, education, legislation, and advocacy. ADL serves as a resource for government, media, law enforcement, educators and the public.
“The immediate object of the League is to stop, by appeals to reason and conscience and, if necessary, by appeals to law, the defamation of the Jewish people. Its ultimate purpose is to secure justice and fair treatment to all citizens alike and to put an end forever to unjust and unfair discrimination against and ridicule of any sect or body of citizens.”
The Philadelphia regional office is located in Center City Philadelphia and serves Eastern Pennsylvania, Southern New Jersey and Delaware. In our community, ADL is committed to safeguarding civil rights of all religious, racial and ethnic groups, confronting anti-Semitism and all forms of prejudice, and bringing our A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE® Institute anti-bias education programs to schools, businesses and community groups.
