Anti-Defamation League Employee Sues Organization

African-American woman sues over denied promotion

A non-Jewish employee of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), is suing the organization, accusing it of denying her a promotion based on the fact that she is not Jewish.

Founded in 1913, The ADL, according to its website, "fights anti-Semitism and all forms of bigotry in the U.S. and abroad through information, education, legislation, and advocacy. ADL serves as a resource for government, media, law enforcement, educators and the public."

But, if you were to ask Tonietta Moffet, she would have a decidedly different opinion about the organization.

Moffet says the ADL will not promote her to assistant director because she is “African American and not Jewish,” according to the New York Post. She has filed a lawsuit in federal court in Manhattan seeking damages for discrimination.

Moffett spent two years reportedly fulfilling the duties of the assistant director in the organization’s National Regional Operations Department despite the fact that she was hired as an administrative worker.

Her promotion was denied due to her lack of “a deep understanding of Jewish culture.”

The ADL has yet to issue a statement regarding the matter.
