CRE Organizational Profile
Not In Our School
Type of Organization: Non-governmental - Non-Profit
Home Country: United States
Across the country, students and teachers are sharing stories, joining together and taking action to create safe schools, free from stereotypes, intolerance, and hate. They’re part of a movement called Not In Our School. Not In Our School is part of Not In Our Town, a grassroots movement that uses digital media and public outreach to highlight communities working together to stop hate. For more than a decade, Not In Our School has inspired students of all ages to develop and share innovative ways to resist bullying and promote an atmosphere of acceptance and inclusion. Now NIOS has launched a special NIOS Educators Network to help connect and strengthen the many NIOS projects that are out there.
For more information about Not In Our School, including a short “What is NIOS?” video, please visit the About NIOS page at http://www.niot.org/nios/about
The NIOS project has a variety of resources including introductory videos like the short What is NIOS? video that can be useful when presenting NIOS to school administration or faculty. There is also a lesson on Starting a Not In Our School Campaign that gives a first-person account of how one school developed their own NIOS campaign, and how that campaign has grown over the years. Also available is a growing collection of NIOS Lesson Plans geared to different grade levels and topics.
