Posted on 06/16/2020
No Place for Hate LogoNo Place for Hate® is an education initiative that is part of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) with over 1,600 participating schools across the country. Since the launch of No Place for Hate® in 2016, over 20 schools in Prince William County have participated in the initiative, empowering students, staff, and family members to promote positive school climates and take a stand against hate and bullying.
