Subject: "No Place for Hate" Week in Pennsyvlania
In the near future, I will introduce a resolution designating the week of May 21-25, 2018, as "No Place for Hate Week" in Pennsylvania, and commending the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) for its outstanding efforts to promote peace and goodwill.

The ADL was founded over 100 years ago to “stop the defamation of the Jewish people and to secure justice and fair treatment to all.” Now as one of the nation’s premier civil rights/human relations agencies, ADL continues the fight against anti-Semitism and all forms of bigotry and asks us to “imagine a world without hate.” Through its 27 regional and satellite offices in the United States, ADL serves as an invaluable resource for government, media, law enforcement, educators and the public at large. As part of the organization's educational and outreach efforts, the “No Place for Hate Program” was designed to provide schools and communities with an organizing framework for combating bias and hatred, leading to long-term solutions for creating and maintaining a positive climate. Established in 1999, “No Place for Hate” is an innovative and powerful method for sending a clear, unified message that all students have a place to belong.

“No Place for Hate” is operational in hundreds of schools, organizations and communities throughout Pennsylvania. Schools that take part in “No Place for Hate” create a more welcoming and inclusive environment for students and staff. One of the requirements of participation in the program is adopting a Resolution of Respect. This resolution affirms a school’s commitment to create and foster an inclusive environment – where all individuals feel safe coming forward if they are the victim of hate or discrimination.

I hope you will join me in support of this important resolution.
