Mount Vernon City School District to host first No Place for Hate Day

Mount Vernon City School District to host first No Place for Hate Day

The Mount Vernon City School District will hold its first No Place for Hate (NPFH) Day on Wednesday, May 29, 2024. Families are encouraged to walk their children to school in a show of unity against hate, bullying, bias and acts of unkindness.

The District is asking everyone to wear a white or maroon shirt on this day.  You can also place an order for a No Place for Hate T-Shirt by clicking here or scanning the QR code.  Please make sure to include the name of your school on the order form. The last day to order shirts is Friday, April 26.

Last year, the Anti-Defamation League of New York/New Jersey designated the District, which has 16 schools, as the largest school district in Westchester County with all its schools designated as No Place for Hate.  

Join the Mount Vernon City School District in continuing its efforts, taking a step in the right direction and walking for acceptance, tolerance, allyship, diversity, equity and inclusion. Each school’s NPFH team will plan interactive activities and have information available about the Anti-Defamation League's No Place for Hate initiative.   

Thank you for working together to build inclusive schools and positive communities of safety, belonging, and respect.
