The population of the United States is becoming increasingly diverse. Although diversity is one of our nation’s greatest strengths, it is often accompanied by significant tension and fear. The need for a pro-active approach in the face of these challenges makes No Place for Hate® as relevant as ever. No Place for Hate® is a program that enables people to challenge anti-Semitism, racism, homophobia, and all forms of bigotry in their communities and schools. It seeks to provide a model for responding to and preventing acts of hatred and for developing projects that enhance an appreciation for diversity and foster harmony.
No Place for Hate® was developed and implemented in eastern Pennsylvania and Delaware by the Anti-Defamation League. Current partners with the ADL are Philadelphia Newspapers, Inc., WPVI-TV, Power 99 and Q102. No Place for Hate® is endorsed by a coalition of 46 organizations representing a wide range of religious, educational, law enforcement, ethnic and community groups and is also endorsed by the Pennsylvania League of Cities and Municipalities and the Philadelphia Commission on Human Relations.
Our goal is to create more harmonious communities and classrooms by reducing bias and increasing an appreciation for the richness that diversity brings. We hope you will join us in this mission!
