In 2013, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) will mark our Centennial. For 100 years, ADL has led in the fight against Anti-Semitism, bigotry and hate with a goal of securing justice and fair treatment for all.
The theme for our Centennial year is "Imagine a World Without Hate," a dream we hope to make a reality.
Locally, ADL's Centennial will be recognized throgh a compelling series of evening speakers featuring ADL experts. This series is open to the public at no charge. Over the course of three sessions, we will highlight the scope of ADL's impact by exploring many of our notable accomplishments in standing up for civil rights; advocating for Middle-East peace; and monitoring extremist groups.
The ADL Centennial Speaker Series is generously brought to the community by Presenting sponsors Marianne and Roger Staubach.
