Combating Extremism And Fighting Hate For Good 

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, it has fought all forms of bigotry and mobilized for civil rights for all marginalized communities.

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 learn from each other. No organization is perfect — far from it. And we can all learn to do a better job of fighting racism and bigotry. But our disagreements should not be a basis for delegitimization.

In response to this misinformation campaign, the Jewish Federation of Greater New Orleans and its Jewish Community Relations Council are both proud to Join With ADL and support its efforts to fight antisemitism, combat extremism and fight hate for good.
