The U.S. Embassy to the Holy See welcomed members of the Anti-Defamation League for a conversation on civil rights and interfaith dialogue. Following a morning at the Papal audience, the group visited the Embassy to meet with Chargé d’Affaires, Louis Bono. Chargé Bono addressed the shared drive of the ADL and the Embassy to advocate for religious freedom and human rights. He emphasized these issues as shared objectives of the United States and the Holy See, and also of the ADL, an organization which has persistently defended the human rights of all citizens.
The Anti-Defamation League was founded in 1913 as a civil rights and human relations organization. It is a nonprofit, nonpartisan group with the mission “to stop the defamation of the Jewish people and to secure justice and fair treatment to all.”
