In the past year we've seen hate of every kind, including most recently the age-old scourge of antisemitism. MƒA reaffirms its steadfast commitment to oppose hate wherever and however it occurs. All hate is hurtful. All hate is destructive. We must all strive to overcome hate in every form.

Teachers often lead in this effort, and we are proud of the many MƒA teachers who do so. For those who are or have been targets of hate, MƒA and its staff stand with you, unconditionally. For those who are witnesses and redress hate, we applaud your courage. For all MƒA's teachers, we hope you will become part of a compassionate community that works to overcome hate in your schools, your communities, and your lives.

John Ewing, President
