. The ADL was founded in 1913 to combat anti-Semitism and all forms of bigotry in the U.S. and abroad.

“Over the years, the partnership between the FBI and the ADL has grown stronger,” said Comey. “Yes, we serve different functions, but we share common values and common goals. We both work to protect the lives and liberties of our fellow citizens. We are both building communities that stand united against crime and terrorism. And we are both committed to promoting and defending freedom.”
