Welcome to the No Place for Hate Activity Library! No Place for Hate schools are regularly updating ways to engage school communities. We are always seeking new ideas and strategies.
To give schools some inspiration, we are excited to share this library of activities for elementary, middle and high schools. All of the activities qualify towards your No Place for Hate designation. They are all linked to one of our free online lesson plans and include a range of topics, interactive modalities and opportunities for discussion. All activities are pre-approved by ADL.
Please check back here regularly as we will add additional activities throughout the school year.
