Join With ADL

August 2020, New York, NY – In response to the campaign launched against ADL on August 12, 2020, organizations have signed the Join with ADL letter to support the value of ADL's century-long work and mission.

As one of the oldest anti-hate groups in the world, ADL has been committed to stopping the defamation of the Jewish people and securing justice and fair treatment to all for more than 100 years. For generations, we have fought all forms of bigotry and mobilized for civil rights for all marginalized communities. Today, we are asking you to join with ADL in that fight.

Unfortunately, at a time when extremism, antisemitism, misinformation and bigotry continue to surge, some are spreading misinformation about ADL’s crucial work. Sadly, these efforts divide the civil rights community at a moment when unity is needed more than ever. Rather than condemning each other, those committed to equity and justice must focus on achieving our mutual civil rights goals. We recognize that no organization is perfect -- far from it. We can all learn to do a better job of fighting racism and bigotry. But our disagreements should not be a basis for delegitimization of important work to address the shared goals. In fact, having diversity among organizations fighting for civil rights only make our efforts stronger.

In response to the negative campaign launched in the summer of 2020, we have received a tremendous outpouring of support from individuals and groups across the country. It has been gratifying to hear from so many people spanning the ideological spectrum who appreciate the work we do every day on the ground in our communities. These individuals and organizations have stepped up to support our century-long body of work fighting antisemitism, racism, and all forms of hatred.
