By engaging in this year-long commitment, No Place for Hate® creates opportunities for students, faculty and staff to assume leadership roles to create a respectful and inclusive school environment.

6. What does the No Place for Hate curriculum look like? Can you send me the curriculum?

No Place for Hate is not a set, standard curriculum in which every educator or student must follow exact lessons, scripted talking points, guiding students to specific learning, with right and wrong answers.

No Place for Hate is a framework, with required steps to be taken within one school year. Each school, each NPFH committee, determines how required steps will be accomplished, who will be involved, when the activities will take place and, most importantly, why they are conducting the activity for their school community as a part of the Initiative. The Initiative is a support and consultation framework designed to incoporate a school’s new and existing programs with one consistent message.

7. What is the best way to introduce this program to my school?

One of the best ways to introduce the No Place for Hate program to your school is to share the the website link,, to those that may be curious to learn more or are interested in getting involved. Share the website with students, teachers, counselors, social workers, administrators, district staff and community members. Gather stakeholders together to have a discussion about WHY you are interested in this program, HOW it fits with your current goals and WHAT it would take to implement in your school. Be sure to include discussions about WHO might lead the effort, who should be involved,  and what other programs are at your school that may complement this type of initiative.  Visit: Is Your School Ready for No Place for Hate?  for more questions to consider.
