ADL Gives Apple CEO Tim Cook Its First Courage Against Hate Award

Apple CEO Tim Cook is the first recipient of the Antidefamation League’s (ADL) Courage Against Hate” award for his work as a champion of unity, diversity, and social progress. The award was presented to Cook at the ADLs annual Never Is Now Summit on anti-Semitism and Hate on December 3 in New York City, where he also delivered the keynote address.

In accepting the award, Cook said that Apple has only one message for those who seek to push hate, division, and violence: You have no place on our platform. You have no home here.” He also made clear that Apple Music has always prohibited music with a message of white supremacy and won’t give a platform to violent conspiracy theorists on Apple’s App Store. The ADL was founded in 1913 in response to an escalating climate of anti-Semitism and bigotry. ADLs mission today is to stop the defamation of the Jewish people, and to secure justice and fair treatment to all.”
