Bullying and cyberbullying have become an epidemic students face every day. In fact, 20% of students ages 12-18 are bullied while 36% of students are cyberbullied, according to research compiled by the Anti-Defamation League. Harmony Public Schools is joining the scores of high schools across the country taking a stand to end bullying and cyberbullying through the No Place for Hate® program. Harmony Public Schools is proud to partner with the ADL for its No Place for Hate® program, which promotes inclusiveness, acceptance, and unity through student-led campus initiatives.
“This is one of the best programs that we are initiating onto our campus as this will give our students and staff the opportunity to thrive and be better humans towards one another,” Kia Simpson Harmony School of Ingenuity, Counselor.
The No Place for Hate® initiative provides educators and students with the resources to ensure that anti-bias and diversity education are an integral part of the school curriculum.
No Place for Hate® schools do the following to acquire their No Place for Hate designation:
- Creating inclusive and safe communities in which respect is the goal, and all students can grow and thrive.
- Provide a common language that can empower students, faculty, administration, and families to take a strong stand against hate and bullying by adding new and existing programs under one significant and powerful message.
- Provide the school and the community with at least three anti-bias activities per school year, which ADL assists in developing.
- Create a clear, unified message that all children have a place to belong.
