You may have heard about a “No Place for Hate” school or seen a banner outside of a nearby public school. The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) developed the program of anti-bias and diversity education to address bullying and discrimination in school. The goal is to create a community of respect among students and educators. A school can be designated as a No Place for Hate by committing to the program and conducting at least three No Place for Hate activities. For example, the ADL and the Travis County Sheriff’s Office recently gathered dozens of students and parents in the Del Valle Independent School District for a 5k run to raise awareness about bullying.
Schools in more than twenty major cities across the country have become designated as No Place for Hate schools, including more than 270 in Central Texas, in addition to schools in Dallas and Houston. For more bullying and anti-discrimination resources, and information on how to receive this designation, see the ADL website.Share the news.
