The Anti-Defamation League is a prominent civil rights organization dedicated to fighting anti-Semitism and other forms of bigotry worldwide. The ADL was founded in 1913 by B'nai Brith, a popular Jewish service organization, in response to increasing attacks on Jews. Today, the organization frequently publishes reports documenting cases of anti-Semitism across the globe, lobbies politicians to advance Jewish interests, and has 29 offices in the United States and three offices in other countries.
