Partner and Co-founder Ryan Baker has been appointed to the Anti-Defamation League’s (ADL) Legal Advisory Committee, effective June 11,2019. Baker will serve as a legal resource for the organization’s Los Angeles chapter and advise on a broad range of matters including discrimination complaints and policy issues.
“The Committee’s mission is to bring justice and fair treatment to those who face discrimination, and is extremely important in today’s climate. ADL is at the forefront of defending threats to our democracy, through their work in fighting anti-Semitism, cyber hate, bullying, bias in schools, terrorism, hate crimes and much more,” said Baker. “I am committed to helping the ADL spread its message of tolerance and acceptance, which are the cornerstone of society.”
ADL’s Legal Advisory Committee is a select group of attorneys from a broad range of specialties who consult with and advise ADL staff on legal matters. In addition, ADL provides educational programs on hate crimes, elimination of bias in the workplace, religious accommodation and religion in public schools.
Historically an organization that combats anti-Semitism, ADL has grown to combat injustice across the nation and has become a leading anti-hate organization. ADL is a global leader in exposing extremism and delivering anti-bias education, and is a leading organization in training law enforcement.
