We’re equipping you with five (5) ways in which you can help to stop hate in your community today. Read below to find out how:

1. Be an ally.

Together we are stronger. Stand in solidarity with people of all ages, abilities, ethnic backgrounds, culture, religion, gender or sexual orientation. Diversity is what makes the human race a beautiful thing to be a part of.

2. Support the survivor.

Embrace survivors of hatred or discrimination with compassion and concern. Let them know that you care for their well-being and that they are a valued member of your community. Ask what you can do to help in times of difficulty.

3. Use your voice.

If you hear messages of hatred, exclusion or discrimination - speak up! Doing or saying nothing in the face of hatred can actually send a message of acceptance or support towards those sharing a hateful opinion.

4. Educate yourself.

An informed perspective can make all the difference. Broaden your understanding of different lifestyles and cultures by connecting to diverse social groups at religious organizations, schools, clubs and community centers in your area.

5. Promote acceptance.

Always remember this universal truth: Human beings share more similarities than they do differences. Everyone desires to feel worthy, to feel loved and have a place of belonging.
