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

We employ a multi-faceted educational, community relations, and legal approach to combat anti-Semitism and hate of all kinds, promote diversity, and build bridges of understanding between communities.

ADL leads the way in creating respectful, inclusive, and civil environments. Our anti-bias education programs operate through ADL’s A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE® Institute and are designed to empower people to recognize and address personal and institutional prejudice and discrimination, and actively promote prejudice-free, inclusive schools and communities in which individual differences are respected and valued. Our programming is implemented in over 120 schools across New England.

The New England Regional Office is based in Boston and led by Regional Director Robert Trestan. Two boards of committed lay leaders—a regional board and a young leadership board—as well as a professional staff provide guidance and support. ADL’s New England Regional Office serves Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont.
The Connecticut Regional Office, established in the early 1950s, is responsible for overseeing ADL’s operations in the state. From assisting victims of discrimination to reaching thousands with anti-bias education, ADL’s Connecticut Regional Office impacts public policy and improves our communities.
