ADL, Education Race and Advocacy: What are we sharing now?

  • June 14, 2020

Heartland Region, June 12

This week, we’ve shared a lot of conversation around race and highlight resources from our education division. They are helpful for educators, parents, workplaces and community. This remarkable week, we continued advocacy with law enforcement commanders on policies and practices in Missouri, worked with regional Muslim leaders against Islamophobia expressed by the Mayor of St. Charles, staffed the US Attorneys Hate Crimes Task Force for Eastern Missouri and Southern Illinois, and started a program with our Board and young leaders called “ADL At The Movies”. The first selection is “13th”, directed by Ava Duvernay. Next month’s selection, “American History X”.
