Lorri Kelley, President of BDI
The mission of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) is to stop the defamation of the Jewish people, and to secure justice and fair treatment to all. Through a network of regional offices nationwide and an office in Jerusalem, the nonprofit, nonpartisan organization organizes and galvanizes grassroots support around the most pressing issues of the day.
“I am excited to be involved in these important organizations that promote the home furnishings industry and push for positive change in our world,” said Kelley. “I feel passionately about the missions of both of these organizations. The American Home Furnishings Hall of Fame Foundation is a leader in the conservation of priceless historical records and materials as well as recognizing the accomplishments of people in our industry. The ADL leads us to engage in reasonable discourse so together we may find solutions to serve our diverse society.”
Kelley currently serves as Education Chair on the board of directors of WithIt, a not-for-profit home furnishings networking and mentoring group dedicated to the belief that women should play a major role in the growth and future of the home and furnishings industries.
