ADL is a leading anti-hate organization.

Today, ADL continues to fight all forms of hate with the same vigor and passion. A global leader in exposing extremism, delivering anti-bias education and fighting hate online, ADL’s ultimate goal is a world in which no group or individual suffers from bias, discrimination or hate. ADL Philadelphia works to accomplish this mission in eastern Pennsylvania, southern New Jersey and Delaware.
The Board Observer Program is an award-winning program that serves a unique role for lawyers and local non-profit organizations. The program gives lawyers the opportunity to volunteer and serve on a non-profit board of directors. They learn about local non-profits, gain leadership skills, and strengthen their professional networks. Participating non-profits benefit from the energy and new ideas of these young lawyers. The Board Observer Program is a partnership between the Philadelphia Bar Foundation, the Delivery of Legal Services Committee of the Philadelphia Bar Association (DLSC), and the Young Lawyers Division of the Philadelphia Bar Association (YLD). Attorneys must apply and the program looks for applicants with a demonstrated interest in community service and/or pro bono work.
