Deborah Lauter, ADL's National Director of Civil Rights
"The Fierce Urgency of Now: Defending Freedom for All in the Post-Civil Rights Era"

Our Women’s Initiative Leadership Council including Kelli Cohen Fein, Audrey Fersten, Judith Finkel, Susi Knight, Sherry Levy, Vicki Merwin and Sallie Teninbaum, invite you to join us in this important discussion on civil rights. Get involved:

  • Individual tickets are $30.00 per ticket, and you may purchase up to 5 tickets.


In the 51 years since Martin Luther King, Jr. stood on the steps of the Lincoln memorial in Washington, DC and delivered his iconic “I Have a Dream” speech, our country has witnessed dramatic social change for the better. There is, however, much more work to be done to realize MLK’s vision of transforming “the jangling discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood.” Anti-Semitism, racism, bigotry, homophobia, and a host of other threats to our freedoms remain rampant and widespread. But there is reason for optimism. At our first Women’s Initiative program of 2015 Deborah Lauter will speak about the state of civil rights in the United States, and how women in Houston can actively work with ADL to help promote justice and fair treatment for all.
