10 Things You Can Do to Combat Hate

August 16, 2017

United against hate.

In the wake of the startling events of last weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia, we are shocked and saddened by the blatant, violent displays of racism and hatred. This is not us, America. We’re better than this. And we can overcome this groundswell of bigotry and hostility if we work together for equality and peace. It may not be easy, but human dignity and equal rights for all Americans are worth the fight.

Here’s how you can combat hate in your community and help build a better tomorrow, courtesy of our friends at the Anti-Defamation League:


  1. Text ACTION to 51555 to receive ADL Action Alerts.

  2. Review our Hate Symbols Database and Report a Hate Crime or Bias-Related incident in your area.

  3. Attend the 23rd Annual ADL in Concert Against Hate.

  4. Share our educational resources with Educators and Administrators at your school.

  5. Urge Congress to help improve federal data on hate crimes by supporting the NO HATE Act (S. 662/HR 1566).

  6. Write an op-ed and send it to your local paper.
