OCTOBER TAKE ACTION ITEMS
TAKE ACTION NOW: FEDERAL INITIATIVE
– ELECTION 2020 RESOURCES
The integrity of our election is vital to securing just and fair treatment for all, which is why voter education and engagement, countering extremism and reporting on how it may impact the election, and speaking out against campaign-related appeals to bigotry and hate are ADL priorities. It will take the concerted effort of many individuals, communities, organizations, and government officials at every level to ensure a safe and fair election this year.
TAKE ACTION NOW: LOCAL INITIATIVES
– ADL LAUNCHES ONLINE ELECTION INCIDENT REPORTING TOOL
In response to growing concerns that extremists could attempt to interfere at the polls in the next few weeks as Americans cast their ballots, ADL has established a new online incident reporting tool that will enable voters to flag any potential hate crimes or disruptions involving extremists. For any incidents specifically related to exercising the right to vote, especially on Election Day at the polls, immediately call 1-866-OUR-VOTE.
