A community launches its campaign by returning an enrollment form to the ADL and establishing a local No Place for Hate® committee made up of representatives from across the community.
The local municipality issues an official proclamation and a press release asserting that the community will enroll as a No Place for Hate® community and organize anti-bias programs to actively challenge hate and bigotry.
Choosing from a menu of more than 30 No Place for Hate® activities that promote respect and understanding, the local committee carries out at least three community-based activities within 12 months.
Once all activities are completed, ADL certifies the city, town or neighborhood as a No Place for Hate® community for a period of one year. The municipality will be presented with an official No Place for Hate® placard for public display.
Each community will have the opportunity to apply for recertification in subsequent years.
