Never Is Now, ADL’s Annual Summit on Anti-Semitism and Hate, is at its core a one day conference focused on understanding contemporary drivers and dynamics of anti-Semitism. However, we cannot look at anti-Semitism in a vacuum, particularly given the daily reminders that any type of hate or bias ultimately hurts us all, particularly if allowed to escalate
The digital technologies that have enriched our lives so profoundly also have enabled racists to spread hate at unprecedented levels in 2017. To advance the fight against hate in cyberspace, ADL convened the second annual Never Is Now Summit in San Francisco, a short trip from Silicon Valley. It brought together leading thinkers from technology giants and startups with educators, journalists, activists and citizens to help create future-facing solutions to an age-old problem. Never Is Now also provided a fitting venue for the launch of ADL'S CTS, opening a vital new frontier in our battle against hate. This annual summit returns to NYC in 2018.
“Over generations, good people were able to push prejudice out of the public square and into the shadows. But today, it’s out in the open—in our schools, on social media and everywhere in between. We need to engage directly with the entrepreneurs and executives who are building our brave new world.” - Jonathan Greenblatt, ADL CEO and National Director Share via Twitter Share via Facebook
