The Anti-Defamation Commission (ADC) is an Australian Jewish communal organisation dedicated to opposing anti-Semitism and all forms of racism and to promoting respect and justice between for people of all religions and backgrounds.
The ADC was established in 1979 as the human rights arm of B’nai B’rith Australia/New Zealand. The ADC office is located in Melbourne. Our core mission is to:
monitor and respond to incidents of bigotry, racism and prejudice;
employ the instruments of research, fact finding, education and law to counter racism and prejudice;
develop and disseminate educational and publicity material; and
build bridges of understanding and friendship among racial, religious and ethnic groups.
