The Anti-Defamation League is a founding member of the Inter-Agency Task Force and continues to serve as an important voice on its executive committee.

Throughout the 14 years of our existence, ADL has been consistent in its commitment to equal citizenship, as reflected in its own mission to combat defamation and discrimination against Jewish people and marginalized communities everywhere.
