Every Child Deserves to Feel Safe
Hate-Free Schools Coalition is a grassroots alliance of community members and groups working toward racial equity. We first came together with the mutual goal of banning the Confederate flag and other symbols of hate in our local school district in Orange County, North Carolina. Now we are a national organization dedicated to achieving equity in public schools and communities
throughout the nation.
Our coalition is growing... Join us
Hate-Free Schools Coalition depends on the support of devoted community members like you who want to make a difference in the lives of Black students. There are many ways to get involved and support us.
Hate-Free Schools Coalition formed in Orange County North Carolina in 2016. Our organization led a community push to ban the confederate flag, a symbol of enduring hate and alienation, from Orange County Schools. After an eight-month battle, the Orange County School Board banned the confederate flag, in addition to other symbols of hate and derision, at the August 14, 2017 school board meeting.
