The No Place for Hate® Initiative is offered to public, private, parochial, and charter schools.  The flexibility of the initiative’s framework makes it a great option for Elementary, K-8, Middle and High Schools alike. The 2016-2017 school year will mark the 5th year for No Place for Hate with ADL Arizona and we intend to serve up to 50 school partners.


Although 2016-17 Registration is now closed, ADL is happy to consult with additional schools considering participation in future years.  Please review the linked information on this site and complete our No Place for Hate Readiness Questionnaire  An ADL representative will follow-up to help set you up for success!

Annual Designation Process:  Step-by-Step Overview

No Place for Hate is designed to rally the entire school around the goal of creating a welcoming community committed to stopping all forms of bias and bullying. It provides a unique framework to incorporate new and existing programs with one consistent message. It can help your school foster a culture of respect and create a safe, bully-free learning environment for students at all grade levels.  The Initiative celebrates that diversity and offers a unique opportunity to prepare young people to succeed in a rapidly changing world.

We are so excited to work with more than 40 partners this year, committed to making their schools No Place for Hate.
Since 2001 when the Initiative launched in Boston, No Place for Hate® has been embraced by more than 2000 schools across the country.  Participants are noticing a real impact on their school climate. The schools that benefit most from this program make it visible and incorporate its message of respect into the fabric of daily school life and school culture. No Place for Hate® becomes, as one teacher describes, “The way we do things here.”
