Susan M. Seligman, New Mexico Anti-Defamation League (ADL) regional director, has spent 21 years working to ensure freedom from prejudice and discrimination. Throughout her career, she has been dedicated to combating anti-Semitism and all forms of hatred through education, legislation, law enforcement, and the media.

Under her leadership, the ADL has been instrumental in passing anti-terrorist and hate crime state legislation. As one of the state’s experts on domestic terrorism, she is a strong supporter of the FBI and other federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies.

Through her partnership with the Bureau, she has provided hate crime training opportunities for executive management and personnel. In 2008, she helped expand the FBI’s reach through the ADL’s annual national meeting, where former Deputy Director John S. Pistole was the keynote speaker.

After graduating from the FBI’s Citizens’ Academy in 2007, Ms. Seligman volunteered to establish the local FBI Citizens’ Academy Alumni Association chapter and attended the first national FBI Citizens’ Academy Alumni Association leadership conference. Since the chapter’s inception, she has served a three-year presidential term and currently sits on the board of directors. She is also a member of the Albuquerque Division’s Community Engagement Council.
