Robert Leikind grew up in a family of survivors of Hitler’s Europe. This sparked a life-long interest in supporting efforts that help our nation live up to the ideals on which it was founded. He has spent his career working for organizations that include the American Jewish Committee and the Anti-Defamation League where he has been involved in the advancement of our very American aspirations through civil rights advocacy, diversity training and
intergroup and interfaith initiatives. He trained as a lawyer and social worker and is pleased to be able to participate in the work of the National Center for Race Amity.
