ADL's Unity Through Understanding Day

NOLA YURP staff members Kendrick Pullen and Nathan Rothstein were invited to participate as facilitators for the Anti-Defamation League's Unity Through Understanding Day. The workshop/conference was attended by nearly 150 high school students from around the city to provide an open forum for these students discuss issues of race, class, and religious discrimination with students from around New Orleans.

The Anti-Defamation League was founded in 1913 “to stop the defamation of the Jewish people and to secure justice and fair treatment to all.” Now the nation’s premier civil rights/human relations agency, ADL fights anti-Semitism and all forms of bigotry, defends democratic ideals and protects civil rights for all.
