On June 8, 2021, Ryan Baker was elevated to the Anti-Defamation League’s (ADL) Los Angeles Regional Executive Committee. Baker, founding and co-managing partner of trial boutique Waymaker LLP, had served the previous year on the Regional Board’s Legal Advisory Committee. In these roles, Baker works to support the ADL’s mission is to fight hate and injustice through legal policy advice and other advocacy.
According to Baker, “the mission of the ADL could not be more important than it is today. In recent years, we have seen ethnic, cultural and religious tensions inflamed by political narratives. At a time when we should be standing together to fight a global crisis, we have been divided. Ignorance and intolerance are largely to blame for these divisions. Particularly at this time, I am thrilled to support the ADL in its mission to fight hate and intolerance through education and advocacy, and I am grateful for the opportunity to be a part of this historically significant organization.”
The ADL’s Los Angeles region focuses on combating anti-Semitism and bigotry of all kinds in Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Riverside and Kern counties. The organization’s work is highly relevant in Greater Los Angeles, one of the most diverse metropolitan areas in the world.
Since its founding in 1913, the ADL’s mission has been to stop the defamation of the Jewish people, and to secure justice and fair treatment to all. Minorities and those who seem different should not be targets of discrimination, threats, or violence.
