What it’s all about: We Stop Hate is an innovative and inspiring nonprofit organization dedicated to…you guessed it…stopping hate. Sure, this means putting an end to bullying, but We Stop Hate takes their mission a step further by encouraging teens to “stop hating on themselves” too.

Founded by teen Emily-Anne Rigal {read our exclusive interview with Emily here!} , We Stop Hate fulfills its mission by engaging teens through various social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. Teens can connect with one another, spreading the message to love yourself and others. The result is greater “teen esteem” as Rigal calls it.

While We Stop Hate has many outlets for involvement, a critical piece of its influence comes from the videos posted to the We Stop Hate YouTube channel. The channel receives thousands of hits, and features teens talking about their own unique qualities, and why it’s important to love yourself and ignore all the haters out there.

We Stop Hate believes that bullying and hate will decrease as messages of love and acceptance (and teen esteem) increase. And as they say on their website, “Raising teen esteem means a better world for us all.”

We Stop Hate depends on the initiative and passion of teens across the nation. So if you’d like to get involved, there are numerous ways to do so!
