The Anti-Defamation League was founded in 1913 “to stop the defamation of the Jewish people and to secure justice and fair treatment to all.” Now the nation’s premier civil rights/human relations agency, ADL fights anti-Semitism and all forms of bigotry, defends democratic ideals and protects civil rights for all.

ADL Philadelphia works to accomplish this mission in eastern Pennsylvania, southern New Jersey and Delaware. Click below to learn more about ADL’s initiatives to combat hate in the region.

Since its founding in 1913, the Anti-Defamation League has led the fight against Anti-Semitism around the world. ADL challenges American and world leaders to take action against anti-Jewish bigotry and violence, and exposes and condemns attacks on Jews. The League also provides resources to counteract anti-Semitism, hatred and intolerance.
