What is the Mayors' Compact?
The Anti-Defamation League and The United States Conference of Mayors are launching a new initiative to fight extremism and bigotry and to promote the fundamental principles of justice and equality that define America.
The August 2017 events in Charlottesville showed that American cities need to take the lead on ending domestic extremism and violent bigotry. More than 270 mayors have signed a compact to make cities safer for all who live there, and to promote the fundamental principles of justice and equality that define our nation.
Mayors and their cities must continue to be a beacon for inclusion, tolerance, and respect for all. We will continue to create stronger cultures of kindness and compassion in our communities, and expect our federal and state partners to join us in this endeavor.
