This #DroptheADL webinar, co-sponsored with Jewish Voice for Peace, took place on Friday, April 8 at 12 PM PT/3 PM ET.
Join us to discuss the ways the ADL has — since its inception — undermined racial and social justice movements and communities, and how we can participate in #DroptheADL organizing in our schools and communities.
