Stand up against discrimination.

Speak out for what you believe. 

Stop the hate. 

What can you do to help put an end to discrimination, intolerance and indifference in your community? These questions are at the core of the Stop the Hate®: Youth Speak Out, an annual Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage essay contest that encourages social responsibility while fostering an appreciation for people of differing religions, races, cultures and socioeconomic backgrounds.

Hear what 2014 Stop the Hate® winner Justin Bachman has to say about the contest and its benefits for participating 6-12th graders in Northeast Ohio in this video he made.
