The Southwest Regional office of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) in Houston extends from El Paso on the west end of Texas to Beaumont on the east end, and all points south. Major cities in the region include Houston, San Antonio, Austin, Corpus Christi, El Paso, and Beaumont. There is a satellite office and area council in Austin.
ADL’s Southwest Region’s banner programs include No Place for Hate®, fighting hatred and encouraging diversity in schools K-12, and our Community of Respect™ encouraging respect and inclusion in all other areas of the community, such as colleges and universities, businesses, community agencies, law enforcement and faith institutions.
We handle complaints of discrimination, racism and anti-Semitism, monitor extremists and domestic terrorists, and work with many in the community, including law enforcement, to fight hatred in all its forms. Our well-established Coalition for Mutual Respect program has led the community in creating avenues of interfaith understanding and dialogue for nearly 15 years.
ADL’s Southwest Region mounts three major fundraising events annually, the Torch of Liberty Award Dinner, the Karen H. Susman Jurisprudence Award Luncheon, and the Walter Kase Teacher Excellence Award Luncheon. ADL’s Austin office also raises funds with an Austin Torch of Liberty dinner every other year.
