Omaha Northwest High School students are doing their part to fight bullying and prejudice.
The local chapter of the Anti-Defamation League presented the school Friday with a banner that reads "No Place For Hate,” part of the national No Place For Hate initiative.
For the school to be recognized, a majority of students had to take a pledge to stand up against bullying. “In order to get the banner we have to get at least 50 percent of the student population to sign a resolution of respect, which means they'll stand up to bullying, to stop bullying, be more active against hate,” said student council sponsor John Nguyen.
Northwest students pushed to get the anti-bullying program underway.
