Banning the Confederate Flag and Other Symbols of Hate
Hate-Free Schools Coalition formed in 2016 to lead a community push to ban the confederate flag and other symbols of hate and alienation, from Orange County Schools. We are continuing this work beyond our school district to help ensure a safe environment for every child.
We are in the process investigating ways that we can institute the ban we fought for in Orange County statewide.
We have assisted people in several other school districts mobilize their community to demand a ban of the Confederate flag. Learn more about how Hate-Free Schools can assist you in developing a plan to empower people in your district.
