(KTVI) - The Anti-Defamation League is known around the world for fighting anti-semitism and bigotry. Here in St. Louis, there's a special partnership between the ADL's A World of Difference Institute and the Art and History Museums.
Karen Aoresty is the Executive Director of the ADL, and she made a visit to Fox 2 to discuss an upcoming fundraiser.
The event takes place on November 21 and honors the partnership between the ADL and the Art Museums program Concepts of Beauty and Bias.
This program has been present in schools for nearly 20 years.
It was designed to provide middle school and high school aged students with the skills to identify bias in themselves and others.
Students participate in activities in the class room and then also visit the St. Louis Art Museum to study different artistic pieces. Through studying these works, students are able to see how the concept of beauty is different depending on cultures.
The fundraiser on November 21 takes place at Monarch from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Tickets are general admission. They cost $40 for those age 40 and under, and $75 for everyone else.
The event will feature artwork to be auctioned at both live and silent auctions.
Food and drink will be served.
To make reservations, call: 314-721-1270
