The Anti-Defamation League (ADL), one of the nation’s forefront civil rights organizations, has signed on to our Statement of Principles as an Official Supporter of the Campaign for the Fair Sentencing of Youth. ADL was established in 1913 and has worked against anti-Semitism and for equality and justice worldwide for decades. They have drafted model hate crimes legislation, fought against online discrimination and hate, and have advocated for justice in immigration, women’s equality, LGBT rights, and much more.
Our work intersects in civil rights and justice for everyone, including those children we’ve sentenced to die in prison. ADL has a strong record of standing up for equality across communities, and we are proud to stand with them in doing so. We are delighted to call ADL a partner, and we look forward to the work we can do together in the future.
