Another Massachusetts Town Breaks Ties with ADL

BELMONT, Mass–The Human Rights Commission of Belmont voted unanimously Thursday to recommend to the board of selectmen that Belmont immediately sever ties with the Anti-Defamation League.
The Human Rights Commission cited the ADL’s failure to unambiguously recognize the Armenian Genocide and its continued opposition to Congressional resolutions recognizing the Genocide.
On Wednesday, Sept. 5, the Needham, Mass. Human Rights Committee decided not to abandon the No Place For Hate program–co-sponsored by the Anti-Defamation League–just yet, but the program remains on thin ice as the committee asked the national organization to back Congressional legislation recognizing the Armenian Genocide.
In a letter to be sent to the ADL, The Human Rights Committee would recommend ending the town’s association with the ADL if the national organization does not directly recognize the Armenian Genocide and change its stance on the Congressional legislation.
