Fighting Hate With Understanding

The African Middle Eastern Leadership Project (AMEL) is proud to announce that it has joined forces with groups across the United States for “Oneday Against Hate”, the first-ever national day of action dedicated to fighting hate through understanding. Taking place on October 1st, Oneday is led by a diverse coalition of corporations, media outlets, nonprofits, and youth movements including NAACP (The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People), Univision Communications Inc. (UCI), PwC, Human Rights Campaign (HRC), UnidosUS, ADL (the Anti-Defamation League) and AMEL. The rapidly growing alliance also includes fraternity Alpha Epsilon Pi (AEPi), the non-denominational Jewish youth group BBYO, the National Catholic Educational Organization (NCEA), Pac-12 (Pacific Coast Conference), and fraternity Zeta Beta Tau (ZBT).

Oneday calls on people of all ages, backgrounds and beliefs to come together in their schools, neighborhoods, workplaces, houses of worship, or communities to start conversations on October 1st. Through online or in-person dialogue, Oneday conversations will explore different identities and life experiences while building understanding of one another as human beings. 

As an organization that promotes human rights, inclusiveness and diversity, AMEL is proud to support the Oneday Against Hate movement. With discrimination, persecution, hatred and bigotry on the rise, Oneday - and the meaningful conversations it will spark - are needed now more than ever.

Take the Oneday pledge and find tools to get your conversations of understanding started on and share your stories with #WeAreOneDay.
