MSD holds ‘No Place for Hate’ assembly

Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School hosted “No Place for Hate” assemblies on Thursday, Feb. 15 and Friday, Feb. 16 in the auditorium. The assemblies took place during students’ study hall classes and taught students how to make their campus more inclusive.

“No Place for Hate” is a Broward County Public Schools adopted program aimed to help all members of the school community create a more equitable and inclusive climate. Through on campus programs and activities, such as the presentation, the program’s goal is to fight bias and bullying on campus.

During the assembly, history teacher Elizabeth Ziolkowski and Student Assessment Specialist Matthew Winans presented slides about topics such as bullying, discrimination and hate crimes. Winans also covered ways to create a more positive school environment and negative consequences of bad behavior.

“The goal of ‘No Place for Hate’ was to promote kindness among MSD students and prevent them from doing the things that ‘No Place for Hate’ stands against,” Winans said.

At the end of the presentation, students were handed flyers with a QR code linked to a Microsoft Form on which they could share any comments, concerns or ideas that they think would help make their school a more positive atmosphere.

“I think the assembly had a good message to inspire some more kindness on campus,” junior Jacob Raider said. “I believe that it shed light on some struggles people face that maybe not everyone thinks about.”

After the assembly, students had the opportunity to sign their names on “No Place For Hate” posters spread out on tables outside the auditorium. With the increased awareness and emphasis placed on creating a more positive campus, the campaign hopes to inspire students and teachers alike to become more effective allies.
