What is the problem with ADL and NPFH?

ADL has yet to acknowledge unambiguously the Armenian genocide. Moreover, for several years it has actively lobbied against Congressional affirmation of the Armenian genocide on behalf of the Turkish government.

Therefore, NPFH’s human rights mission clearly conflicts with the ADL’s policies of genocide denial and helping Turkey to defeat Congressional affirmation of the Armenian genocide. It is contradictory and absurd for NPFH to be responsible for combating hate in our communities while its creator and sponsor is actively engaged in genocide denial, which is the highest form of hate speech and the final stage of genocide.

Thus, Armenian-Americans and other human rights advocates are asking cities and towns nationwide who participate in the No Place for Hate program to sever their ties with the ADL. In Massachusetts, seven communities have already disassociated from the ADL.
