No Place for Hate

The Museum of History and Holocaust Education at Kennesaw State University is committed to providing the space and opportunity to engage in meaningful, respectful dialogue with members of our diverse communities. This commitment to educating about the past and its significance today is the foundation of our exhibitions, programs, and educational outreach.

As a program spotlight, we'd like to introduce you to the Anti-Defamation League's No Place for Hate. Founded in 1913, the Anti-Defamation League is the world's leading organization fighting anti-Semitism through programs and services that counteract hatred, prejudice and bigotry.

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) presented Kennesaw State University with the No Place for Hate designation in 2012 for its work in Holocaust education and efforts to fight intolerance. KSU is the first university museum in the nation to receive a No Place for Hate designation. In support of this program, the MHHE hosts art and writing contests, public lectures, and outreach in our community that feature multiple and complex experiences.

“For Kennesaw State University to be the first university nationwide to be designated a ‘No Place for Hate’ is significant,” said Lewis. “It reflects our commitment to the community, and we’re very excited about the honor. The Museum of History and Holocaust Education has had a long-term partnership with ADL, and we’ve worked collaboratively on issues related to discrimination. This designation recognizes the University’s efforts, and we are thrilled.”
