ADL's WALK Against Hate attracted hundreds to its path along Martin Luther King Drive in Philly.
The Anti-Defamation League’s 2015 WALK Against Hate stepped into the spotlight on Sunday, raising $500,000 as it attracted hundreds of people from all walks of life to express their determination to battle bias, all accomplished on a sunny day along Martin Luther King Drive in Philadelphia.
Barbara Shaab, director of development for ADL in Philadelphia , and the one who ran the program, called this year's gathering "our biggest and most successful event yet,” one which "delivered our largest crowd and raised more money for ADL than all four previous years."
It wasn't all about shoe leather; there were programs and entertainment as well. "Most importantly," said Shaab, "the blending of education from the Diversity Expo, the entertainment from the Multicultural Stage, and the expression and support of our differences that was demonstrated by the walk itself, conveyed our message of taking steps in the right direction to celebrate diversity.”
