Professors Heidi Gorovitz Robertson and Doron Kalir participated in Anti-Defamation League’s (ADL) National Leadership Summit. The Summit took place in Washington D.C., between May 7-9. It featured prominent thought leaders from a wide variety of backgrounds, who discussed, among others, the rising tide of antisemitism and hate speech, challenges facing the immigrant community, the current state transgender persons, and the current crisis facing the criminal justice system. The Summit culminated in a visit to the Hill, which included presentations by Senators John McCain, Al Franken, and Ben Cardin, as well as a visit to Rep.Marcia Fudge’s chambers to advance ADL’s values of tolerance and justice for all. Rep. Fudge is a proud Alumna of Cleveland-Marshall.
