Hate-Free Schools Coalition formed in 2016 to lead a community push to ban the confederate flag and other symbols of hate and alienation in Orange County Schools.
We are continuing this work beyond our school district to help ensure a
safe environment for every child.
Our fight to ban the Confederate flag in Orange County schools exposed an underbelly of racial intolerance in the district. We realized the fight would not end once a ban was achieved. Another major aspect of our work is empowering communities to fight racial inequities in their local schools.
