 “Treaty by treaty, policy by policy the world leaders built a great body of laws and vowed to uphold them and the progress they achieved was immense.

 “The manic and momentous spread of intolerant messages from hate groups, on social media, and within schools is largely attributed to the extreme lack of education surrounding these topics in the American school system.” Zoe Hoffmann Kamrat, Hamden High School, Hamden, Connecticut. 

 “In a process called confirmation bias…online communities are reinforcing racist, sexist and other unjust predispositions.” Layne Gibson, William A. Hough High School, Cornelius, North Carolina. 

 “Hatred has become regular and common in the world…hate crimes are preceded with hate speech…Words and actions act as bullets.” Arisha Rehan, Beaconhouse School System, Pakistan.
