Our Mission

HateBraker's mission is to identify, educate, and award those acts and behaviors that interrupt the cycle of hate-breeds-hate. We work to achieve our mission in three ways:

 Meet a Hero, Be a Hero: HateBraking 101

 Community Speaking & Engagement

 HateBraker Hero Awards

By hitting the brakes on hate, a HateBraker interrupts the cycle of hate-breeds-hate, whether it be by seeking understanding and healing or bettering the world.

HateBrakers works with schools and community organizations locally and around the globe to further develop tools, presentations, exhibits, educational materials, and publications.

Educational Program

Meet A Hero, Be A Hero: HateBraking 101

Using video interviews appropriate to provide audience with role models, HateBrakers created Meet A Hero, Be A Hero: HateBraking 101 program, in which videos that are a part of the educational material allow:

  • provide unique role models for survivors of hate
  • offer restorative alternatives to revenge
  • prompt courageous conversations from bullying to genocide
  • develop empathy and moral courage
  • connect survivors, perpetrators and witnesses of acts of hate
  • create compassion for the self and others
  • inspire post-traumatic growth

HateBrakers created a hundred page educational guide that provides lesson plans and group activities after each video.

What is a HateBraker?

HateBrakers are role models who experienced an act of hate as either a victim, witness, or perpetrator and, instead of continuing this pattern of hate, changed the world for the better in very specific ways. Their stories are examples to everyone. We think people are much more likely to pump the brakes on hate if they see someone else doing it.

We celebrate the leadership and heroism of these individuals.
