Meet A Hero, Be A Hero: HateBraking 101

HateBrakers are usually modest people, more doers than explainers—which may explain why they are often so effective. They don’t go on talk shows to preen. They don’t even see themselves as remarkable. They simply wouldn’t be able to live with themselves if they’d acted otherwise.

Since most stories of hate crimes end when the hate gets quiet we provide follow-up stories about hitting the brakes on hate. We believe that, the more people become acquainted with such cases, the more and more common the gesture of Hatebraking will become.

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 kids to become immersed and actively involved by breaking down and dissecting the importance of what the interviewees accomplished. In addition, to promoting conversation between students and their peers in which, as a class or group, they become more apt to continue the discussion about sensitive topics like racial tension.

HateBrakers created a hundred page educational guide that provides lesson plans and group activities after each video. Our Meet A Hero, Be A Hero: HateBraking 101 program may help to prevent the next school shooting, motivated by hatred.
