The first campaign of the AMEL Speakers Bureau is a partnership with the Anti-Defamation League (ADL)'s New York/New Jersey Region. The joint campaign, entitled My Voice Our Future, focuses on public events at college campuses and community centers across the New York/New Jersey area. Preparation for these speaking engagements is done through online training (approximately a 12-20 hour time commitment spread across 4 months) and a final 2-day in-person workshop. Following the training, speakers are then deployed to events to share their stories related to topics such as combatting anti-Semitism, anti-Muslim bigotry, racism, and hatred; advancing women’s rights and LGBT rights; protecting minorities and marginalized groups; promoting interfaith cooperation; combatting exclusion and bridging differences and divides.
