BENEFITING: Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith
The Anti-Defamation League, a 98 year old agency, was started to provide just and fair treatment to all citizens alike. The ADL defends democratic ideals and protects civil rights for all. A leader in the development of materials, programs and services, ADL builds bridges of communication, understanding and respect among diverse groups, carrying out its mission. No Place for Hate® is an initiative that empowers people to challenge all the “isms” and all forms of bigotry. The Michigan ADL office launched No Place for Hate® in 2010. This anti-bias initiative provides schools with the tools to reduce intolerance, bullying and name calling and to create a more inclusive learning environment. Students and faculty come together to form a community where they affirm their commitment to respect diversity. Through performing three of over 100 activities the school can customize appropriate activities and reinforce a “Resolution of Respect” and promise to build an environment where all students, teachers and administration will be supportive of each other and create a prejudice free zone where dignity and equality and intergroup harmony are the school goals. The ADL provides supportive staff and materials to go along with the project.
