Tuesday evening, the Ferguson Library, in conjunction with Sacred Heart University, The Dilenschneider Group and Hearst Media Services, brings Abraham H. Foxman, National Director of the Anti-Defamation League, to the Ferugson library who will give a talk entitled “Civility in Politics and Public Life: A Current Challenge.”
Mr. Foxman is a world-renowned leader in the fight against anti-Semitism, bigotry and discrimination. Born in Poland in 1940, Mr. Foxman was saved from the Holocaust by his Polish Catholic nursemaid who baptized and raised him as a Catholic during the war years. His parents survived the war, but 14 members of his family were lost. He arrived in America in 1950 with his parents. He appears frequently on national news programs and is quoted often in The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, Time and Newsweek, among other media.
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.” A premier civil rights/human relations agency, ADL fights anti-semitism and all forms of bigotry, defends democratic ideals and protects civil rights.
