On November 6, I was proud to introduce the Governor of the Great State of California to the delegates who were present at the Anti-Defamation League's (ADL) National Meeting in Los Angeles. Having recently risen to the post of Board Chair of the Los Angeles Region, I was given this honor.
The Governor spoke for about 20 minutes, he was witty and engaging and demonstrated why he has been such a mainstay in California Politics for four decades. Among many topics he discussed he addressed the ADL on issues which center around stopping extremism and hate crimes. In our law enforcement outreach programs the ADL interacted closely with the Governor when he was Attorney General five years ago. Governor Brown participated and worked with the ADL in bringing white supremacists and others to justice. I was proud to be a part of this event and the ADL whose 101 year mission has been and continues to be, “to stop the defamation of the Jewish people and to secure justice and fair treatment to all.”
