No Place for Hate Youth Summit

texas no place for hate

The 2020 No Place for Hate® Youth Summit is a newly designed and highly impactful series of virtual programming that originally took place during the week of October 5-9, 2020. We invite Middle School and High School No Place for Hate coalition members and coordinators from all around the Lone Star State to attend this week of content designed to inspire allyship and activism. 

Recorded sessions are available below. You can access this content with your coalition either synchronously or asynchronously. 

We hope this flexibility allows as many participants as possible.
