Roberta Clark, regional director of the Anti-Defamation League for North Texas and Oklahoma, will speak at Congregation Beth El Binah shabbat service, which takes place at Resource Center, 2701 Reagan St. at 7:30 p.m. tonight (Friday, April 24). Clark’s topic will be Rules, Civil Rights, and Jewish Values.
The Anti-Defamation League was founded in 1913 “to stop the defamation of the Jewish people and to secure justice and fair treatment to all.” Now national civil rights/human relations agency, ADL fights anti-Semitism and all forms of bigotry, defends democratic ideals and protects civil rights for all.
Throughout her ADL career, Clark has developed and implemented the first Interfaith Security Conferences for the Florida and Austin ADL offices; has trained well over 1,000 law enforcement professionals in ADL resources and programs as well as worked closely with them on cases concerning hate groups, extremism and terrorism; worked with dozens of educational institutions and school districts to successfully negotiate church/state issues and to provide trainings in the areas of bullying and cyberbullying; and provided guidance and assistance to community members who believe they have been the victims of discrimination and/or hate crimes.
Clark came to the ADL Dallas office as an Associate Regional Director in September 2008, was appointed Community Director in January 2012 and Regional Director in July 2014.
Everyone is welcome.
