Frequently Asked Questions

ADL is a leading anti-hate organization. Founded in 1913 in response to an escalating climate of antisemitism and bigotry, its timeless mission is to protect the Jewish people and to secure justice and fair treatment to all. Today, ADL continues to fight all forms of hate with the same vigor and passion. ADL is the first call when acts of antisemitism 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.

ADL In Concert Against Hate is an annual celebration event that began in 1995 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the end of the Holocaust. That first Concert honored the memory of four individuals who are recognized as “Righteous Among the Nations” – non-Jews who rescued Jews from the Nazis during the Holocaust. Twenty-seven years later, ADL In Concert Against Hate continues to honor ordinary people who perform extraordinary acts of courage and compassion when confronted by antisemitism, hatred and bigotry. Individuals who do not stand by while they or others are the targets of injustice, but instead choose to act.

This year, ADL In Concert Against Hate will again be virtual on Sunday, December 12, 2021 at 8 pm ET. We are excited for you to join us from your home or at a watch party with friends, family, neighbors or colleagues to celebrate this year’s honored heroes and share a night of music and inspiration with ADL supporters from across the country and around the world.

Each year ADL honors ordinary people who perform extraordinary acts of courage and compassion when confronted by antisemitism, hatred and bigotry. Last year our honorees included a Holocaust survivor, author and human rights activist who founded the non-profit Citizenship Counts, a young woman who pushed back when her classmates asked for the “skin-colored crayon” and meant the peach crayon, and a group of five educators in Brownsville, TX who were moved to lead an effort to provide humanitarian assistance and community building to asylum seekers waiting at our southern border. We will announce this year’s honorees at the Never Is Now closing plenary, and we can’t wait to introduce them to you!
