Statistics show that our schools are becoming more diverse. No Place for Hate® celebrates that diversity and offers a unique opportunity to prepare young people to succeed in a rapidly changing world. The initiative seeks to provide a method for combating bias, bullying and hatred in our schools and offers a unique opportunity to incorporate new and existing programs with one consistent message. No Place for Hate® creates more harmonious communities by combating bias, promoting respect and increasing an appreciation for the richness that diversity brings.
Steps to Becoming No Place for Hate®
- After contacting the Anti-Defamation League, a school launches its program by establishing a No Place for Hate® Committee to oversee the school’s anti-bias activities. The Committee should include faculty/administrators, parents and students.
- The No Place for Hate® Committee chooses at least three No Place for Hate® projects that recognize diversity and promote respect and understanding.
- The school signs the Resolution of Respect or issues an official declaration affirming a commitment to promoting respect and challenging bigotry in all its forms.
- The school plans and implements three or more No Place for Hate® approved projects within the first year.
- The Anti-Defamation League then officially designates the school as No Place for Hate® for a period of one year. During an official presentation, the school receives a banner to commemorate this milestone. The school has the opportunity to be re- designated in subsequent years by implementing additional projects and activities.
