Since bringing ADL’s National Walk Against Hate™ to Omaha and transforming it from an afternoon ‘walk’ into aweek-long, COVID-safe ‘journey,’ we have unearthed profound appetite for this positive community experience. Thanks to inspired collaborators and creative partners willing to open their doors and welcome us, we have marveled as the scope of our event has blossomed. Therefore, it is with great excitement and anticipation that we announce shifting the launch of our event to Sunday, Nov. 22 in order to accommodate expanding locations and enriching this one-of-a-kind experience for the public.
ADL-CRC’s Walk Against Hate™ encompasses 24 locations (accessible actually and virtually) across the Omaha Metropolitan Area that hold significance to the evolution of civil rights and civil liberties in our community.
Every week, between now and Sunday, Nov. 22, we will slowly unveil the identity of the first twelve sites on our event website: www.adlplains.com.
On the Sunday of our launch, we will unveil the remaining twelve sites and the week-long journey will begin!
We hope you enjoy our journey as much as we are enjoying bringing it to life. We thank all those responsible for helping us in this endeavor! Sponsors for the Walk Against Hate include the ACLU of Nebraska, Tri-Faith, Fraser Stryker Law Firm, and the Douglas County Board of Commissioners.
The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) 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 right/human relations agency, the ADL fights anti-Semitism and all forms of bigotry, defends democratic ideals and protects civil rights for all. Locally, the ADL-CRC office was established in 1950. In a unique relationship, the ADL also serves as the Community Relations Committee (CRC) and is the central resource for information on social issues and problems affecting the local Jewish community in Nebraska, Iowa and Kansas. The ADL-CRC attempts to foster conditions conducive to creative Jewish living in a free society.
