ADL’s No Place for Hate® initiative provides schools and communities with an organizing framework for combating bias, bullying and hatred, leading to long-term solutions for creating and maintaining a positive climate. No Place for Hate schools receive their designation by:
For millions of students, bullying, cyberbullying and name-calling can damage their self- esteem and ability to learn. No student should ever feel isolated because of his or her ethnicity, race, religion, sexual orientation or physical appearance. No Place for Hate is an effective part of the solution, which is currently offered through 17 of ADL's regional offices.
A useful tool for your classroom to help students understand how words, jokes, and stereotypes can escalate to hate.
Since its inception in 1999, No Place for Hate has directly reached over 3.5 million people and is currently active in more than 1500 schools and communities nationwide.
We are seeing the difference every day, as described by one school administrator:
"The students took the lead from the very first meeting. Their passion astounded me. They quickly identified the most problematic issues here on our campus regarding hatred, bigotry, and intolerance, and dedicated themselves to be true agents of change."
