ADL’s 2020 Never Is Now Summit Goes Virtual & Free

The world’s largest summit on antisemitism and hate is getting bigger

Denver, CO October 23, 2020 . . . ADL’s Never Is Now Summit, the world’s largest summit on antisemitism and hate, will be held from November 8 – 19, 2020. The conference has previously been held annually in New York City. This year, it will be held virtually and is available to all at no cost. The summit kicks off at 7 p.m. MST on November 8 with the opening plenary featuring an expert panel reviewing the election, the annual State of Hate address and the presentation of ADL’s 2020 Courage Against Hate Award.  

Breakout sessions will be spread over the next 11 days, from noon to 1 p.m. on November 10, 12, 17 and 19. Topics include Extremism and the Election: What Now?; From the Quad to the Keyboard: How Hate has Moved from on Campus to Online; Black-Jewish Relations in 2020: Navigating a Changing World; Antisemitism In Progressive Spaces: How It Looks, How To Address It;  Antisemitism Across Borders: The Spread of Hate and Its Impact On Global Jewish Communities, and The Vital Need For Holocaust Education.

The Summit closes with a final session on November 19 at 6 p.m. that will cover everything from the importance of athletes as role models in the fight against hate to the successful Stop Hate for Profit campaign launched this year to hold social media companies accountable for hate on their platforms.

 “Never before has it been so easy to attend ‘Never is Now.’ Every year, ADL’s summit on antisemitism and hate provides up-to-the-minute information on the depth and breadth of hatred and what we can do to fight it. At a time when we are seeing the number of antisemitic incidents reach unprecedented levels, it is good to know this important program is easily accessible for all.”

— ADL Mountain States Regional Director Scott Levin

This year’s summit also features a dedicated track for high school students to participate with special sessions and post-event virtual gatherings, and opportunities for attorneys to earn CLE credit.
