Nov. 29, 2018 — With the help of the Anti-Defamation League, area middle school students spread a message of kindness and generosity at the Beau and Abe Merfish No Place for Hate Youth Summit recently at the University of Houston Law Center.

"The Anti-Defamation League has partnered with the University of Houston Law Center for many years," said Monica Mensah, director of student advisement, in her welcoming remarks. "We are so grateful to have these dedicated and focused students at the Law Center. Standing against hate is a characteristic that great lawyers have and you are well on your way to becoming strong advocates and making a mark on your community."

Following the introduction, students participated in breakout sessions that discussed diversity and additional anti-bullying education on how to make their schools a place with zero tolerance for hatred. It marked the third year that the ADL and the Law Center joined forces to host this event.

Students from middle schools across the Houston area learned methods to counter bullying at an event co-hosted by the Anti-Defamation League and the University of Houston Law Center.
