Don't Ban NO PLACE FOR HATE Banner!
Published January 24, 2010
We want Wheatland, Wyoming and Wheatland High School to be known as a community where there really is NO PLACE FOR HATE.
In the spirit of that belief and hope, we the undersigned, both from Wheatland, and also from all over the world, ask that Wheatland High School be allowed to put back the No Place for Hate banners, and to continue to work toward respect and tolerance for ALL students, and all human beings, through participation in the No Place For Hate program.
Furthermore, we the undersigned, from Wheatland and beyond, promote the No Place for Hate Resolution, as follows:
I pledge from this day forward to do my best to combat prejudice and to stop those who, because of hate or ignorance, would hurt anyone or violate their civil rights. I will try at all times to be aware of my own biases and seek to gain understanding of those who I perceive as being different from myself. I will speak out against all forms of prejudice and discrimination. I will reach out to support those who are targets of hate. I will think about specific ways my community members can promote respect for people and create a prejudice-free zone. I firmly believe that one person can make a difference and that no person can be an innocent bystander when it comes to opposing hate. I recognize that respecting individual dignity, achieving equality and promoting intergroup harmony are the responsibilities of all people. By signing this pledge, I commit myself to creating a community that is No Place for Hate.
Thank you! Wheatland, WY is No Place for Hate.
