American Italian Anti-Defamation League

The American Italian Anti-Defamation League was a political advocacy group formed by a group of Italians from New York City in 1967. [Vincent J. Cannato. "The Ungovernable City: John Lindsay and His Struggle to Save New York". Basic Books, 2001. p.391.] They held a concert in New York City where Frank Sinatra, the national chairman, played for an audience of 20,000.

They were sued by the Anti-Defamation League for appropriating their name and eventually dissolved. [ [http://muse.jhu.edu/journals/american_quarterly/v058/58.4decker.html Project MUSE ] ]
