Hate Has No Home Here - Needham, MA

$3,436 of $2,500 goal

Raised by 121 people in 10 months
The Hate Has No Home Here campaign originated in the North Park neighborhood of Chicago, and has spread worldwide. The phrase used in the graphic was imagined by a 3rd grader and Kindergartener at a neighborhood elementary school (the two boldly declared “hate has no home here”), with artwork donated by designer Steven Luce. Thousands of posters have been distributed across the country, and the world.

The purpose of this fundraiser is to raise money to cover the costs of producing "Hate Has No Home Here" yard signs and stakes for Needham, MA. The signs cost $4.60 each. We began with an order of 100 and those went quickly to homes throughout Needham. We then placed an order for 300 more signs, and the demand is so high that we recently ordered 100 more signs for a total of *500* signs ordered for Needham to date. We want to provide a sign to anyone in Needham who would like one. Please help us reach our fundraising goal to cover the cost of printing the signs.

Thanks so much for your support!

WHAT IS HATE HAS NO HOME HERE ABOUT?

THE NEED
Hate, unchecked, can make neighbors feel fearful and unwelcome in their own communities. 

THE MESSAGE
The Hate Has No Home Here project seeks to declare neighborhood residences, businesses, and places of community free from hate speech and behavior, providing safe places for conversation, work, learning, and living.

THE PLAN
Hate Has No Home Here encourages other communities to participate in combating hateful messages and behavior in their neighborhoods by going beyond the poster or sign. In the North Park neighborhood, they have used this opportunity to gather neighbors, start conversations about protecting and encouraging each other, and make plans for using resources to educate others.

WHO’S BEHIND IT?
The “Hate Has No Home Here” sign project began with a group of neighbors from North Park, a Chicago neighborhood characterized by its diversity of age, race, nationality and ethnicity. Many ties bind the residents of North Park to one another; the most notable is the neighborhood school, Peterson Elementary School, where the student body mimics the demographics of the neighborhood and where educators and families are committed to celebrating diversity. The phrase used in this poster was imagined by a third grader and kindergartener at Peterson Elementary School; Steven Luce, a North Park neighbor and designer, created the graphics; and neighbors Catherine Korda, Barbara Nordlund, Megan Trinter, Carmen Rodriguez, Jeanne Marie Olson and Kurt Peterson secured the translations, organized and launched the campaign.

WHAT’S THE POINT?
The Hate Has No Home Here movement is built around a simple idea: it’s easy to hate people we don’t know. Posters and yard signs are just the beginning. What starts as powerful, positive messaging continues in relationship-building, dialogue, and communal action. When neighbors of different races, religions, and nationalities move past indifference to investment in one another, we knock out the underpinnings of racism and intolerance, and make possible a better future for our communities.

To our wonderful donors,
The signs are here!!!!!
They look GREAT.
Our goal now is to get as many signs out on yards as we can.
I wanted to offer a sign (or more) to each of you first, before offering them to everyone in Needham.
If you would like to pick up a sign for yourself (or one or two for a neighbor or friend) please just let me know how many you would like and I will leave them out for you on my porch.
Thanks so much.
Joanna
