Wednesday, October 23rd, an Anti-Defamation League A World of Difference® Institute facilitator conducted an assembly at Kehilla Jewish High School in Palo Alto for nearly 160 students and educators to help them confront bias and bullying. Students were given tools to become an ally and stand up for others who are bullied or have faced discrimination. Several students shared thoughtful responses and opened dialogues that will continue both in formal classroom settings, but also as students mix socially. ADL offers these programs, as well as support and guidance to schools working to promote a safe, respectful and inclusive school environment. If you are interested in learning about these programs, please call ADL’s Central Pacific Region office at 415-981-3500 Ext. 227 or visit http://www.adl.org/education-outreach/.
