Newton is proud to have been
designated a No Place for Hate school
for it's 5th year in a row!
The Anti-Defamation League is proud to continue its No Place For Hate® campaign in the Mountain States Region for a sixth year. Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors -- The Gay and Lesbian Fund for Colorado and The David and Laura Merage Foundation -- this campaign continues to grow. Fifty schools in Colorado and Wyoming have been accepted into the initiative in 2012-2013.
No Place for Hate® was developed to organize schools to work together and develop projects that enhance the appreciation of diversity and foster harmony amongst diverse groups. The campaign empowers schools to promote respect for individual and group differences while challenging prejudice and bigotry. Every day we make choices. We can choose to let anti-Semitism, racism, and other forms of bigotry go unchallenged and potentially escalate, or we can choose to confront the bias that we see in our workplaces, homes, schools, and communities. As our world becomes smaller and our schools and communities more diverse, it is more critical than ever to actively build bridges to cross-cultural understanding and mutual respect.
