No Place for Hate
The No Place for Hate® initiative provides educators and students with the resources to ensure that anti-bias and diversity education are an integral part of the school curriculum. No Place for Hate® also 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.
“HUMANS OF …” INSTAGRAM CAMPAIGN
Inspired by the “Humans of New York” campaign, lead a discussion with students about different aspects of identity (e.g., race, religion, language, gender, etc.). Following this discussion, create a student-led team that will interview students about aspects of their identities and post one interview, with an accompanying picture, on your school’s Instagram account daily. Interviewers should encourage people to share an aspect of their identity that makes them unique, and include a variety of languages represented at your school where appropriate. Be sure to monitor the Instagram account to respond to any negative feedback. GRADES 6-12
