Youth Voices Against Hate

Several students in Jeremy Grossman’s high school English class were selected as winners in the spring #USvsHate contest, a national campaign to promote anti-hate messages. The class worked in small groups to communicate their thoughts, feelings, and perspectives on topics of discrimination and bias that they felt strongly about.
Contest winners Anthony M. ‘26 and Olympia B. ‘26 created a visually compelling art piece to address the problems with racial color blindness that shows how a teacher might see their diverse students, with a message that reminds viewers, “If You Don’t See Race, You Don’t See Me.” Audrey C. ‘26, , Chloe P. ‘26, and Lily K. ‘26 conveyed their opposition to ableism through their thought-provoking poster that depicts a student in a wheelchair staring up at a school situated on a hill with ramps on either side to ensure accessibility. Vail H. ‘26 and Milo M. ‘26 were selected as winners in the Conversation Starters category for their project on Anti-Semitism. They drew a parallel between the violence inflicted on Jews during the Holocaust and contemporary  acts of hate, particularly through gun violence. Mr. Grossman addressed the comprehensive nature of the research-based project, writing:  “...because of the individualized nature of the project and the many steps taken to look at their issue from multiple lenses, students were able to both meaningfully engage with their communities and begin to build a more welcoming and safe way of showing up in all their various communities.” Click here to see these and other contest pieces.
