ADL Regional Director Scott Levin to Speak in Boulder on “Rising Hate in America”

ADL Regional Director Scott Levin

Rude and unsociable speech and hate crimes are on the rise in the United States. What are the root causes? What can be done?

Anti-Defamation League Regional Director Scott Levin will speak on “Rising Hate in America” at 7:00 pm, May 30 at Congregation Har HaShem, 3950 Baseline Road, Boulder.

The Anti-Defamation League was founded in 1913 and has maintained an office in Colorado for 78 years. During that entire time, its mission has been not only to fight anti-Semitism, but also to secure justice and fair treatment to all. Today, ADL is the foremost expert on the mainstreaming of hate in America. In close collaboration with other communities and law enforcement, ADL works to expose, prevent and combat anti-Semitism, racism, anti-LGBT, Islamophobia and other forms of hate.

ADL’s Mountain States Regional Office serves Colorado, New Mexico and Wyoming. Scott Levin has been the Regional Director since 2010 after retiring from over 28 years as a trial attorney. Scott gave up the practice of law and assumed this position in order to pursue his passion for fighting hate and bigotry. Scott is a frequent speaker and writer on civil rights issues. He has authored many articles and testified numerous times before the Colorado Legislature on issues of equality, diversity, inclusion and educational opportunities for all.

Scott is an ardent advocate for ADL’s anti-bias and inclusiveness education campaign, No Place for Hate®. He also works with local, state and federal law enforcement agencies to ensure the prosecution of hate crimes.

Raised in Denver, Scott was a 1979 Phi Beta Kappa graduate of George Washington University in Washington, D.C., and received his law degree from the University of Denver College of Law in 1982.
