Launched in 2001, No Place for Hate® is a national initiative that provides educators and students with resources to ensure that anti-bias and diversity education are an integral part of the school curriculum. It helps to create and sustain inclusive school environments where all students feel valued and have the opportunity to succeed by promoting respect for individual difference while challenging bigotry and prejudice.
The Austin Independent School District has been designated the largest "No Place for Hate" school district in the nation. In just three years, all of AISD’s 122 schools have acquired the status. In order for a school to qualify, every student on campus must participate in three group activities addressing bias, prejudice and other topics that students deem worthy to the entire school. Every person on campus must also sign a resolution of respect.
