Never Is Now Frequently Asked Questions

Tell me more about ADL.
ADL is a leading anti-hate organization.  Founded in 1913 in response to an escalating climate of anti-Semitism and bigotry, its timeless mission is to protect the Jewish people and to secure justice and fair treatment for all.  Today, ADL continues to fight all forms of hate with the same vigor and passion.  ADL is the first call when acts of anti-Semitism occur.  A global leader in exposing extremism, delivering anti-bias education, and fighting hate online, ADL’s ultimate goal is a world in which no group or individual suffers from bias, discrimination or hate.

Never Is Now is ADL’s Annual Summit on Anti-Semitism and Hate. As ADL’s signature annual event, it 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 given the daily reminders that any type of hate or bias ultimately hurts us all, particularly if allowed to escalate. Hear from experts, academics and leaders in the fight against anti-Semitism, bigotry and all forms of hatred.
