Anti-defamation League



ADL is a leading anti-hate organization. It was founded in 1913 in response to an escalating climate of anti-Semitism and bigotry. The Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith, Mountain States Regional Office began in 1913 as a volunteer committee in B'nai B'rith, led by Simon Heller. The purpose of the organization was to fight prejudice and intolerance and to preserve the Jewish democratic heritage. The formal organization was established in 1941 as the tri-state office with Harold Saks as the first director. The Mountain States Regional Office in Denver worked toward the elimination of discrimination in employment, housing, accommodations and education.
