Be An Ally
The Be An Ally project was created in 2011 by CBS 6 in partnership with the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), Neil and Jane Golub and Price Chopper. Together our goal is to inform students, families, educators and the public on what can be done about bullying and cyberbullying.
Utilizing the broadcasting power and credibility of CBS 6, the commitment and impetus of Neil and Jane Golub and Price Chopper and the rich informational resources of the ADL, the Be an Ally project is a call to action for everyone. Together our goal is to inform students, families, educators and the public on what can be done about bullying and cyberbullying.
About our Partners
The Anti-Defamation League
has been educating the public to fight bigotry and extremism since 1913.
ADL’s A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE® Institute is a leading provider of anti-bias education and diversity training programs and resources.
Neil and Jane Golub became personally involved with the ADL in the mid 1980’s. Neil’s support and Jane’s tireless work led to the first ever K-12 A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE curriculum, which was adopted by the New York State Department of Education. This curriculum was critical to the development of ADL’s anti-bias education program, A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE® Institute, used around the world.
WRGB is the first television station in the world and has been committed to making a difference in our communities for more than 80 years.
