Not In Our Town is a movement to stop hate, address bullying, and build safe, inclusive communities for all. Not In Our Town films, new media, and organizing tools help local leaders build vibrant, diverse cities and towns, where everyone can participate.
Our unique approach is based on the premise that real change takes place at the local level. We focus on solutions to inspire and empower communities to create a world where:
- All residents stand together to stop hate and promote safety and inclusion for all
- Students and school leaders work to prevent bullying and intolerance, and promote kindness
- Law enforcement and communities join forces to prevent hate crimes and violence
