We are excited to announce that ADL’s Voices: A Show of Unity will return to the Klein Memorial Auditorium for the second year. Proceeds from the event will benefit ADL Connecticut. Their mission is to fight anti-Semitism and secure justice and fair treatment for all. VOICES will be an inspiring and fun evening that will showcase the importance of ADL through music and story-telling. ADL Connecticut responds to incidents of anti-Semitism and other forms of hate in our towns, runs anti-bias/anti-bullying education programming in our schools, monitors extremists online, and partners with law enforcement to keep us safe.
