ADL Arizona has designated 31 Arizona schools as No Place For Hate (NPFH). Among them is Hayden High School (HHS), which is being recognized for creating a safe learning environment, bringing awareness to the issues of bullying and bias, promoting diversity, unity and respect among students.
No Place For Hate is an ADL initiative offering students, teachers, administrators and family members the opportunity to work together to enhance a culture of respect in the school community.
The program encourages schools to complete various campus activities and projects to promote unity and reduce bullying, name-calling and other expressions of bias.
ADL Arizona Regional Director Carlos Galindo-Elvira, an HHS 1985 graduate, commented, “I am beaming with pride that Hayden High School joins 30 Arizona schools committed to campuses free of bias, bullying and bigotry.”
“The work by Hayden High School demonstrates the leadership and direction of students working toward inclusivity and respect for all students,” Galindo-Elvira added.
Hayden High School’s banner was presented to the HHS No Place for Hate Committee at a student assembly on May 15, 2019.
