ADL’s A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE® Institute is generously funded by Neil and Jane Golub in the Albany Region. The Institute is a leading provider of anti-bias, anti-bullying and diversity training programs and resources. The Institute seeks to help participants: recognize bias and the harm it inflicts on individuals and society; explore the value of diversity; improve intergroup relations; and combat racism, anti-Semitism and all forms of prejudice and bigotry.

With the broadcasting power of CBS 6, the rich informational resources of the ADL, and the dedication of Neil and Jane Golub, the Be an Ally campaign was created in 2011 to be a call to action for all. Together, our goal is to continue to inform students, families, educators and the public on what can be done about bullying and cyberbullying and to encourage others to Be an Ally! Check out our PSA’s here.


Echoes and Reflections is the result of an unprecedented partnership among three leaders in education: the Anti-Defamation League, the USC Shoah Foundation Institute for Visual History and Education, and Yad Vashem. This resource includes everything teachers need to teach the complex issues of the Holocaust and its lessons for today.
