Ford Foundation Awards ADL $500,000 Grant to Support Research on Anti-Immigrant Groups, Anti-Bias Education
ADL, May 15, 2012
The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) has been awarded a $500,000 grant to expand its research work on anti-immigrant groups, and to continue support for Making Diversity Count®, the League’s award-winning online anti-bias training program for educators.
“We are gratified the Ford Foundation has reaffirmed the importance of our efforts to monitor and expose anti-immigrant groups, an area of our work that has become increasingly important as we continue to partner with prominent Latino civil rights organizations on this issue,” said Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director. ”We are so very proud to count the Ford Foundation among our closest partners in our vital work to seek justice and fair treatment for all and to further democratic values.”
Through the same grant the Foundation also renewed its funding support of ADL’s Making Diversity Count® (MDC). MDC is an online anti-bias professional development program designed to give educators the tools they need to effectively promote diversity and respect for all students as well as to combat and confront bullying.
