Woodward Academy junior and Stone Mountain resident Rachel Erbrick has been selected to represent Woodward in the ADL Grosfeld Family National Youth Leadership Mission to the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C. in November.
The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) is one of the nation’s premier civil rights and human relations agencies. Constantly striving to develop creative approaches to countering prejudice, in 1996 ADL’s Greater Chicago/Upper Midwest Regional Office launched an annual Youth Leadership Mission to the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C. Utilizing the Museum’s dramatic portrayal of events, this Mission to our nation’s capital offers a substantive and effective vehicle for applying the lessons of the Holocaust to modern-day issues of bigotry.
delegation will consist of a diverse group of high school juniors (and two
adult ADL chaperones) selected to participate because of their leadership
potential, demonstrated interest in addressing issues of diversity, and ability
to impart the messages of the Mission to others.
