A case in point was the Sept. 30
peer-training session run by the
Anti-Defamation League's World of

district made the commitment to
the three-part ADL training to give
the high school community tools to
fight bias of all sorts — bias based
on race, religion, sex, age, appear-

that divide human beings.
Running the training session were
Meredith Laban, who directs the
World of Difference program, and
Corey James, an ADL trainer.

activities in every homeroom semi-

each participant making a sculpture
