Jonathan Greenblatt, author of IT COULD HAPPEN HERE - a virtual Boswell event
Boswell, Nathan and Esther Pelz Holocaust Education Resource Center, the Jewish Community Relations Council, Congregation Emanu'el B'ne Jeshurun, and Harry and Rose Samson Family Jewish Community Center present an evening with Jonathan Greenblatt, author of It Could Happen Here. In conversation with Paul Schmitz of Leading Inside Out.

As CEO of the Anti-Defamation League, Jonathan Greenblatt has made it his personal mission to demonstrate how antisemitism, racism, and other insidious forms of intolerance can destroy a society, taking root as quiet prejudices but mutating over time into horrific acts of brutality. But it doesn't have to be this way. Drawing on ADL's decades of experience, education programs, and legislative victories as well as his own personal story, Greenblatt offers a bracing primer on how we - as individuals, as organizations, and as a society - can strike back against hate. Just because it could happen here, he shows, does not mean that the unthinkable is inevitable.

From Anthony Romero, Executive Director of the ACLU: "There has never been a more perilous time for individual rights and liberties. And as Jonathan Greenblatt illustrates so powerfully in It Could Happen Here, we must understand our history, both recent and distant, to avoid the threats to our rights today. We must act now, heed his advice, and fight for what's right."

Jonathan Greenblatt is the CEO of the Anti-Defamation League, the world's leading anti-hate organization with a distinguished record of fighting antisemitism and advocating for just and fair treatment to all. He joined ADL in 2015 after serving in the White House as special assistant to President Obama and director of the Office of Social Innovation and Civic Participation. He joined the government after a distinguished career in business as a successful social entrepreneur and corporate executive.
