2021 Day Without Hate Rally

The Rally, open to all high school students, features live bands, guest speakers, incredible student talent, and an unparalleled energy of peace, unity, and respect. The event is set designed to cap off an amazing Day Without Hate by celebrating all that is right in public schools.

2021 Virtual Day Without Hate Rally

Day Without Hate is a student-led, grassroots organization that promotes nonviolence, unity, and respect in our schools and communities. After the shootings at Virginia Tech in 2007, students at Standley Lake High School asked their classmates to wear white in order to show a commitment and trust in each other to make their school a safer place. The day was an overwhelming success. Since then, students across Colorado and the nation have taken this incredibly positive day to their communities to say that we will not tolerate violence or hate, and we will reach out to friends and acquaintances and say, "We're all in this together."

The Day Without Hate (DWOH) District Committee is a group of students who spend the entire school year planning activities for DWOH. They decided that they would hold Day Without Hate this year, even though it would look a little different as they all had no school on Friday, April 30th when DWOH was scheduled to be. Schools across the state (and even the country) celebrated Day Without Hate this week, whether it was on Wednesday, April 28th, Thursday, April 29th, or Friday, April 30th. Hopefully, next year, we can all go back to celebrating it together on the last Friday in April.

Even though the high school students of Jefferson County could not get together to celebrate the Day Without Hate Rally in person, they wanted to make sure that everyone could enjoy a Virtual DWOH Rally again this year.
