No Place For Hate Schools for the 2016-2017

Posted by Communications on 5/17/2017

Carl Hayden and Franklin Police and Fire High Schools were two of 35 Arizona schools the Anti-Defamation League     designated as No Place for Hate Schools for the 2016-2017 school year, at a May 4 event at Phoenix College.    These schools were recognized for creating safe and respectful learning environments and bringing awareness to the issues of bullying and bias.  

The No Place for Hate initiative provides schools and communities with an organizing framework for combating bias, bullying and hatred, leading to long-term solutions for creating and maintaining a positive climate.

According to ADL, No Place for Hate schools receive their designation by building inclusive and safe communities in which respect is the goal, and 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; engaging schools and communities in at least three anti-bias activities per year, which ADL helps to develop; and sending a clear, unified message that all students have a place to belong.
