Lovers Not Haters

LOVERS NOT HATERS: Several local schools were recognized this week for their commitment to eradicating hate from their hallways and discrimination from their classrooms. In a ceremony Tuesday evening, the local chapter of the Anti-Defamation League’s No Place for Hate campaign honored Adams, Cleveland, and Monroe elementary schools; Goleta, La Colina, and Santa Barbara junior high schools; Dos Pueblos, Santa Barbara, and Santa Ynez high schools; and UCSB’s MultiCultural Center and two residence halls for their commitment to confronting bias. All of the schools mentioned organized at least three activities apiece in the past year that sought to address discrimination issues for parents, teachers, and students. Of particular note at the ceremony was a parent workshop at Cleveland Elementary aimed at preschool-aged children and the Becoming an Ally program for faculty and staff at Monroe Elementary.
