Stop the Hate: Anti-Hate Crime Campaign

The National Crime Prevention Council, SHINE, and the Ad Council joined a coalition of celebrities to launch a series of anti-hate public service announcements (PSAs) in response to so many innocent groups and individuals being assaulted and discriminated against after September 11th. The PSAs include teen and adult-targeted messages to encourage all Americans to band together in unity rather than react with feelings of hate.

Following the terrorist attacks of September 11th, more than six hundred hate crimes were reported to the Council of American-Islamic Relations and the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights. We want to encourage the belief that all Americans have a role to play in promoting tolerance.

Circuit City donated many hours of airtime to the PSA by showing it on their in-store network. "Stop the Hate" has also been included in the program "Heal America," created by In-Flight Media Associates. "Heal America" shows the resiliency of the American people through stories about healing, families of victims of the September 11 attack, and stories about improvements in travel safety. The program aired on Continental Airlines in March and April of 2002.
