What better place than Philadelphia…to have such an event? Morrison offered. “Its the City of Brotherly Love.”

The walk, is the Anti Defamation League’s way of asserting its way back in to the community dialogue of inclusion and inclusivity in the South Eastern

Pennsylvania Region, Morrison told BuxMontNews.com in an exclusive interview.

The ADL has been active in the region for a number of years, and thought it was time to celebrate Philadelphia’s “Diversity” of community organizations and individuals that comprise it.   The ADL with the support of a number of other community based organizations decided an annual event reflecting the “Principles, ideals and values” of those that laid the groundwork for our everyday freedoms is needed, the ADL Spokesperson, shared.

Morrison, went on to say, “it’s not a response or a rally”  but  a celebration of the entire cultural experience of the region.

“Founded in 1913, The Anti-Defamation League has evolved into an international  organization dedicated to standing up for the rights of all groups. ADL is
hosting its first annual WALK Against Hate on Sunday, May 15, 2011 to promote diversity.”
