On May 21, 2015 Lady Gaga accepted the ADL Making a Difference Award for her Born This Way Foundation.
Lady Gaga in an uplifting message to more than one million students involved in the No Place for Hate program nationwide, praised the students "for taking a stand against bias and bullying" and urged them to keep working for change.
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.
See what some of our schools are doing:
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, bigtory, and intolerance, and dedicated themselves to be true agents of change."
