Religion in Public Schools
When students encounter inappropriate or insensitive religious activity in their public schools. The Southeast office can provide guidance, resource materials and training to parents and students on ways to respond to these situations.
The Southeast office is the “911” for individuals who believe they are experiencing discrimination or are concerned about possible civil rights violations. While we do not provide direct legal services, ADL works to resolve complaints through the force of the organization’s long-established credentials in this crucial arena.
Law Enforcement and Society
In conjunction with our partners at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, this program offers high-ranking police officials in the Southeast region an opportunity to travel to Washington, D.C. to explore how police officers can develop new tools for building positive relationships with the communities in which they work.
This interactive, hands-on program is available to Synagogue teen groups and others who want to help Jewish youth understand how to combat anti-Semitism and take pride in their heritage.

The Southeast office works closely with law enforcement officials in Georgia, Tennessee, Alabama and South Carolina to alert them to the presence of hate groups and the activities of those groups in their jurisdictions.
