Anti-Defamation League and ArtWorks ADL
The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) fights anti-Semitism and all forms of bigotry in the U.S. and abroad through information, education, legislation and advocacy. ADL serves as a resource for government, media, law enforcement, educators and the public. The Philadelphia regional office is located in Center City Philadelphia and serves Eastern Pennsylvania, Southern New Jersey and Delaware.
ArtWorks ADL is the premier art exhibition and fundraiser highlighting the mission and impact of the Anti-Defamation League – to stop the defamation of the Jewish people and to secure the justice and fair treatment to all.
