No Place for Hate

Wilder is a “No Place for Hate” School

The No Place for Hate initiative was started this school year, 2018-2019. This program is sponsored by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) which is a school climate improvement framework that provides schools with support and strategies for combating bias, bullying and hatred, leading to long-term solutions for creating and maintaining a positive climate. The purpose for No Place for Hate is to:

  • Build inclusive and safe communities in which respect is the goal, and all students can thrive.
  • Empowering students, faculty, administration and family members to take a stand against hate and bullying by incorporating new and existing programs under one powerful message.
  • Sending a clear, unified message that all students have a place to belong.

There is a No Place for Hate Committee that is comprised of students from 6th-8th grade, all counselors, a parent, stakeholders from Henrico Mental Health, Communities In Schools, and the family advocate.
