Students mark Day Without Hate Friday with rally, concert

WESTMINSTER, Colo. - Thousands of students will mark Friday as the Day Without Hate - a day to talk about how to end school violence and show that "we are all in this together."

Many students will be wearing Day Without Hate T-shirts Friday and some 5,000 students are expected at a rally and concert Friday night at Jeffco Stadium.

Day Without Hate, is a student led, grassroots organization that promotes nonviolence and unity in schools, according to JeffCo Schools.

"After hearing about the tragedy at Virginia Tech in 2007, a small committee of students and teachers at Standley Lake High School felt that they had to do something, anything to make a difference, big or small, or least draw attention to the more frequent acts of school violence and ideas on how to stop it," the group's website explains. "After brainstorming a few possibilities, they decided to set up A Day Without Hate, the first step to end school violence in schools."
