2019-2020 school year was remarkable and unprecedented.  Although, we aren’t celebrating with the pomp & flair that we have become accustomed, we are incredibly proud to designate 60 schools as No Place for Hate for the 2019-2020  school year!!! Check out our school partners at this link: 2019-2020 NPFH Schools

ADL will celebrate with students, educators, community partners, donors and more in different ways in the weeks and months ahead to ensure all of our remarkable educators and students are recognized for their hard work creating caring, safe and inclusive communities.  Even as school changed, educators, their students and families persevered in their commitment to each other! ADL is proud to be your partners!

ADL’s student art contest winners created pieces that speak to us and have deeper meaning during this time, see their remarkable and creative artwork here: 2019-20 Student Art Contest Winners.

ADL is also recognizing three schools in 2019-2020 that went above and beyond the requirements of No Place for Hate and their stories will be told  soon. ADL’s 2019-2020 No Place for Hate Excellence Award Winners are Sagebrush Elementary School (Cherry Creek District 5), Louisville Middle School (Boulder Valley) and ThunderRidge High School (Douglas County).

Stay tuned for more virtual celebrations!

ADL has learned that promoting sustainable, positive change in school climate is a continual, long-term process rather than a final destination. ADL’s No Place for Hate Initiative is a school climate improvement framework that provides preK-12 schools with an organizing framework for combating bias, bullying and hatred, which can lead to long-term solutions to foster and maintain a positive climate. No Place for Hate schools receive their designation in the following ways:

  • Building inclusive and safe communities in which respect is the goal and where all students can thrive.
  • Empowering students, faculty, administration and family members to take a stand against hate and bullying by incorporating new and existing programs under one powerful message.
  • Sending a clear, unified message that all students have a place where they belong.

The most successful No Place for Hate schools make it visible, create a community language, incorporate elements within their curriculum and weave their message of respect into the fabric of daily school life.

Only with ADL’s generous sponsors are we able to continue to work with educators, students and families to ensure school communities are safe, positive and inclusive environments for all.  Thank you to —  The Jay and Rose Phillips Family Foundation of Colorado, The Melvin & Elaine Wolf Foundation, The Curtiss-Lusher Family and The Gerald and Roberta Quiat Family Foundation — and our supporters —  Hank & Cheryl Saipe; Larry & Marilyn Atler, Peggy Goldman, Gary Kleiman & Elisa Moran, Merrill Lynch as well as other generous supporters.
