About the Walk

2024 Michigan Walk Against Hate

September 29, 2024

ADL, a more than century-old anti-hate organization, has been moving against hate even before the first Walk Against Hate took place in Philadelphia in 2011. Since the first Walk gathering, ADL’s Walk Against Hate has grown in size and reach, uniting communities across the country in a show of solidarity against antisemitism, bigotry and any other form of hate. In 2020, ADL’s Walk Against Hate moved to a national stage with a virtual Walk engaging more than 100,000 participants.

This September, we’re on the move again...
to bring thousands together to fight hate for good.



Ways to Participate:

All participants must register for the Walk Against Hate. There is no fee for registration but donations in any amount are encouraged and support ADL Michigan’s work in our community. People who raise $18 or more will earn a t-shirt, but hey, this is a fundraiser: set out to raise as much as you can!
Move with us:

On September 29, join us for a community-wide 2-mile walk, at the Southfield City Centre, located at 26000 Evergreen Road, south of I-696.

Schools, civic organizations, houses of worship, corporate partners, elected officials, and families move together toward a future without antisemitism, racism, and hate of all kinds. This event will include a short inspiring program featuring community leaders.

Can't make it?:
Can't get to Southfield or have a conflict that day, but still want to participate? 

Anytime between now and September 29, take your own action to fight hate. You could run, walk, pedal, roll, or swim. Post a photo or video to your social media using the hashtag #WalkAgainstHate and #ADLMichigan so we can highlight your action on one of our social media platforms.

When You Register:

Registering creates your personal fundraising page, allows you to form or join a team and takes you a step closer to getting a Walk Against Hate t-shirt delivered to your door.

There is no fee for registration but fundraising is a key component to the Walk Against Hate. Any amount helps and supports ADL's work in your community and at large. If you fundraise $18 or more, you will receive a Walk Against Hate t-shirt the day of the Walk. We have a $100,000 fundraising goal and welcome your outreach and efforts to get us there!
We're excited you are joining us for this year's Walk and we hope you are excited too. Your personal fundraising page offers easy tools to share your Walk with others via social media and email, and helps you invite them to join you. In addition, we will continue to share tools for engagement and ways to make a difference with all of our walkers and team captains as our community comes together to #WalkAgainstHate with #ADLMichigan.

Step out on your own or invite a group to gather to walk together. We'll have signs and t-shirts available to help you make your message clear. And you don't have to walk... spin, roll, run, swim, stretch! Feel free to be creative in how you Walk Against Hate.
That's right, take a moment to celebrate! Yes, there is still much to do, but there are so many of us united and motivated to fight hate for good. And you are part of that movement. Thank you! Celebrate your voice, your commitment, and your courage to speak out when and where you see injustice.
