Apple CEO Tim Cook to Accept ADL Courage Against Hate Award on December 3

At the annual Never is Now Summit on Anti-Semitism and Hate, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) will present Apple CEO Tim Cook with its inaugural Courage Against Hate Award.

Cook, says the ADL, has been "led by a strong moral compass" and has demonstrated that the business community has a responsibility to make the world better for all people.
He recently said, "We advocate for human rights because Apple has always been about making products for everyone. And, arguably, if people are treated as second-class citizens in any part of the world, then it's kind of hard to accomplish that objective."

Tim has been led by a strong moral compass. In his role as Apple CEO, Tim is committed to leading by example in tackling critical social issues that are also core to ADL's mission including immigration and refugee rights, LGBTQ rights, cyberhate and civil rights.
The ADL also highlighted Apple's donations to ADL and other civil rights groups, along with Cook's inspiring letter to employees following the events of Charlottesville, where he wrote: "We've seen the terror of white supremacy and racist violence before. It's a moral issue -- an affront to America. We must all stand against it."

For all of the reasons listed above, the ADL chose Cook as its award recipient.

Cook will be in attendance at the Never is Now Summit in New York City on December 3, where he will speak after receiving his award.

Tickets for the event are available for $150.

Update: Tim Cook's keynote speech at the ADL "Never is Now" summit will be available via a livestream that starts at 7:00 a.m. Eastern Time on Monday, December 3. Cook is set to receive his award and speak at 3:20 p.m. Eastern Time.

I liked Apple more when they had an engineer for a CEO, not a politician/businessman.

How about accepting an award from... oh I don't know... bettering the products of your own company? And when I say 'bettering', I don't mean endlessly iterating and actually worsening (in some cases) said products while raising their prices.

This is total nonsense. The ADL is a hate group


Absolutely correct. The ADL is a disgusting organisation who routinely target people who they deem to be an enemy of their extreme far-left political agenda. They are anti-American in terms of their continual attempts to shut down free speech online. They have extremely subjective and undefined concepts about things like so-called "hate speech" - something the Supreme Court has unanimously ruled DOES NOT EXIST. In other words, "hate speech" IS free speech.

They work with social media sites to routinely censor and deplatform anybody they deem a threat to their hyper "progressive" worldview. Open borders, extreme liberalism, and make no mistake about it - firmly anti-white.

Let's be absolutely clear about what the ADL are. The ADL are an anti-American, extreme far-left hate organisation that is systematically undermining the very fabric of American society. A disgusting affront to civil liberty, decency and the very values that made the US one of the greatest civilizations the world has ever known.

Shame on Tim Cook for associating with them and shame on Apple for embracing these hateful far-left degenerates.

Is Tim saying he's for human rights because it helps to make people Apple consumers? And is he saying that Apple makes products for everyone (at their prices?)

How many more awards do we need in society? Everyone really does get a trophy.

Why are people so narrow minded? The man has a B.S. in industrial engineering. Why can’t you do two or more things at once? Remember Jobs was busy with Pixar too. Cook is both CEO and engaged with human rights stuff.

Tim will never be the product genius Steve was but he does other great thing for humanity and I like that.

Jobs sold Pixar in 2006. And I don’t feel like I’m being narrow minded. I’m still an Apple fan, but their products were headed in a much better direction, IMO, under job’s supervision. The question is, why am I an Apple fan? Well, cuz they make good phones and good computers, and that’s all I care about. I pay premium prices for their products, and what makes me mad is that it appears some of that money is being spent to make political points and “humanitarian” events. If I was a kind and considerate person that actually cared about that stuff, I would give my money to political and humanitarian groups, but as I previously said, all I care about, as far as Apple is concerned, is having a nice phone and a nice computer. Let me put it this way: when job’s was ceo, I knew that the money I spent on Apple’s products was put back into product quality, but now... who knows what it gets put into. Political campaigns, humanitarian projects, whatever... Apple can do what they want, but when a company chooses to sell a product to a consumer, especially in the “premium” category (as Apple considers itself to be a part of), that company immediately takes on the responsibility of prioritizing the quality of that product. That’s called just plain old simple honesty and integrity. I never doubted that was happening with Job’s. I can’t say the same with Cook though.

was Steve really a engineer? not sure about that. HE understood products and what he liked but engineer? ehh

You don’t need to have a degree to be an engineer. Jobs understood products, just as you said. What is an engineer? Someone who makes science applicable. Jobs did just that.

The comments here are rediculous. Guy wins award for standing up to hate. How do people respond? With hate!

Some Apple fans here are a prime example of what is wrong with the World today. Full of self importance and no compassion.
