Miami Beach to Wave Its Anti-Bullying Banner Proudly

(Miami Beach, FL) Apr 29, 2019 -

The City of Miami Beach, in partnership with the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) and Miami-Dade County Public Schools (M-DCPS), invites you to a No Place for Hate Banner Presentation event on Thursday, May 2 at 6 p.m. at the North Beach Bandshell.

No Place for Hate, a program which counters racism, name-calling and bigotry in schools, includes school wide and age-appropriate activities along with training students and educators to combat hate language. The presentation of the ADL No Place for Hate banner to each public school in Miami Beach is the result of the city’s efforts to ensure a safe, peaceful and respectful school community for all youth in its public schools and supports the city’s attainment of the ADL designation as a Community of Respect.

The schedule for the event will be as follows:

  • 6 p.m. – Welcome from Mayor Dan Gelber, City Commission and City Manager Jimmy L. Morales
  • 6:10 p.m. – Overview of Community of Respect and No Place for Hate initiatives
  • 6:15 p.m. – ADL Representative Banner Presentations
  • 6:30 p.m. – MB Teen Club
  • 6:40 p.m. – School performances by elementary and middle school choirs, rock ensembles, jazz bands and Miami Beach Senior High Fusion Dance
  • 8 p.m. – Closing remarks

By helping to achieve educational excellence, the program supports the Miami Beach Education Compact. Implemented in January 2008, the Education Compact reflects the desire of the Miami Beach community to support excellence in the city’s public schools and enhance the health and well-being of the city’s youth.
