WHAT IS NO PLACE FOR HATE?

NO PLACE FOR HATE IS A CAMPAIGN FOUNDED BY THE ANTI-DEFAMATION LEAGUE, FOCUSED ON IMPROVING SCHOOL EXPERIENCES BY WORKING WITH STUDENTS AND FACULTY TO BUILD A COMMUNITY OF RESPECT. THIS CAMPAIGN STRIVES TO ERADICATE BULLYING, PREJUDICE, DISCRIMINATION, AND CULTURAL, RACIAL, AND GENDER BIASES IN OUR SCHOOLS.

WHY NO PLACE FOR HATE?

THE FOLLOWING CONCERNS HAVE BEEN BROUGHT TO OUR ATTENTION, BY SOME STUDENTS OF GRAYSON HIGH SCHOOL AS WELL AS MEMBERS OF OUR COMMUNITY:


  • SOME PEOPLE HAVE A NEGATIVE PERSPECTIVE OF THE SCHOOL
  • GRAYSON IS NOT ALWAYS ACCEPTING OF ITS VAST DIVERSITY
  • SOME STUDENTS ARE BOUNDED BY CLIQUES
  • WE WANT TO FOSTER A CULTURE OF RESPECT
  • WE NEED TO ESTABLISH GRAYSON AS A HATE FREE SCHOOL

WHAT DO WE HOPE TO ACCOMPLISH WITH NO PLACE FOR HATE?

•PROMOTE POSITIVITY IN THE SCHOOL

•EMBRACE THE DIVERSITY OF GRAYSON'S STUDENTS AND FACULTY

•CREATE A SAFE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT FOR EVERYBODY

•STOP ALL FORMS OF BIAS AND BULLYING

•IMPROVE STUDENTS' SCHOOL EXPERIENCES

•INCREASE AWARENESS OF SOCIAL, CULTURAL, RACE, AND GENDER DIFFERENCES IN GRAYSON
