ADL Hosts San Diego’s First Walk Against Hateby Brie Stimson March 8, 2018
“We believe that something like the Walk Against Hate can help spread a louder message of respect and kindness,” Lindsey Zipkin, associate director of development for the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) in San Diego, says.
Ten years after the first Walk Against Hate started in Philadelphia, the San Diego ADL is planning its own march on April 15. “In San Diego, we are certainly no strangers to people that want to harm our community with messages of hate,” Zipkin says.
In March the ADL released their Annual Audit on Anti-Semitic Incidences for 2017, and the numbers in San Diego grew by more than 40 percent.
“We hope that the event brings San Diegans together in a meaningful way to make a statement that America’s Finest City is truly no place for hate,” she adds. “We hope that it allows community members to connect with organizations they might not have ever known about before through our Diversity Expo, which will feature organizations from throughout the city.”
They also hope to raise funds to bring ADL’s anti-bias education programs into more schools.
The Walk Against Hate will take place at Liberty Station’s Ingram Plaza on April 15 at 8:30 a.m.
