Welcome to ADL New York / New Jersey Region

ADL is the world’s leading anti-hate organization. Founded in 1913 in response to an escalating climate of anti-Semitism and bigotry, its timeless mission is to protect the Jewish people and to secure justice and fair treatment for all. Today, ADL continues to fight all forms of hate with the same vigor and passion. A global leader in exposing extremism, delivering anti-bias education, and fighting hate online, ADL is the first call when acts of anti-Semitism occur. ADL’s ultimate goal is a world in which no group or individual suffers from bias, discrimination or hate.

Under the banner of a newly unified New York / New Jersey Region, ADL will expand our reach by enhancing our programming for students and educators across New York State, Northern and Central New Jersey.

We are committed to Fighting Hate For Good and serving as a powerful voice against discrimination and injustice. Though we know the world will continue to change and challenge us, ADL will remain steadfast in the tireless pursuit of our mission – to the stop the defamation of the Jewish people and secure justice and fair treatment to all.

Here is how your support makes an impact:

  • 119,005 students have been impacted by ADL’s No Place For Hate® initiative, which helps create a more inclusive school culture by providing a framework to combat bias, bullying and hate.
  • 3,000 students and families participated in Words to Action programs throughout New York and New Jersey, learning information and response strategies to challenge anti-Semitism and anti-Israel bias on campus and in the community.
  • Over 1,000 New York and New Jersey law enforcement officers have been trained on how to address extremism, hate crimes and counter terrorism in their communities.
  • Over 800 incidents of anti-Semitism and hate are recorded and addressed annually by ADL professionals in collaboration with law enforcement and a broad range of community partners to ensure that every individual’s rights are protected.
