The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) founded in 1913, is one of the nation’s premier human relations and civil rights organizations, fighting anti-Semitism and bigotry of all kinds. ADL celebrates its Centennial in 2013 with the theme Imagine a World Without Hate™. The Sherwood Prize recognizes law enforcement officials that go above and beyond their job descriptions in combating extremism, bigotry, and hatred.

During the ceremony Detective Ray Webb from LAPD’s Devonshire Division and Los Angeles Deputy City Attorney Ayelet Feiman will be honored for investigating and prosecuting a hate crime that took place on April 2, 2012, when a Jewish family’s home was vandalized with human feces, swastikas and the word “Jew” drawn in maple syrup. The juvenile suspects were sent to a teen court program and the mother of one of the suspects was charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
