The Atlanta Chapter, and many of its members, played a role in the issues concerning not only Jews, but all citizens of Georgia as well.

Donald Oberdorfer served as chairman of the Exectutive Committee of the National Council, Joint Defense Appeal, the fundraising arm of the AJC and Anti-Defamation League (ADL) prior to 1962 when they began independent campaigns. Throughout its history the American Jewish Committee has worked diligently to combat antisemitism, discrimination, and to futher Jewish identity along with integration into American life. The collection consists of a 50th anniversary booklet and pamphlets from the Atlanta Black/Jewish Coalition. Arranged in chronological order.
