No Place For Hate is designed to enhance a culture of respect and to create a safe, bully-free learning environment for students at all grade levels. In compliance with the New York State Dignity Act, No Place For Hate offers schools the opportunity to be recognized for their staff development and student training related to bullying, harassment and discrimination.
Since ADL is dedicated to the mission of ending hatred and bigotry toward all people, we offer No Place for Hate at no cost to schools. Schools that fulfill all requirements will receive a personalized No Place For Hate banner at the end of the school year.
