(January 13, 2020 / JNS) Prior to playing the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday night at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., the home team Brooklyn Nets warmed up in shirts that read “No Place for Hate,” featuring the Anti-Defamation League’s logo.
The motto is the ADL’s education program for fighting hatred, bullying and bias in public schools.
The initiative came in the aftermath of recent anti-Semitic attacks in New Jersey and New York.
“Tonight, we’re warming up in #NoPlaceForHate shirts in collaboration with the @ADL to show that #WeGoHard against hate,” tweeted the Brooklyn Nets, adding a link where people can learn more about the ADL program.

JNS is more than just another news website and syndication service. It is an organization devoted to nonstop reporting, and telling the truth about Israel and Jewish issues unburdened by the biases and institutional blinders that distort so much of what we read, hear and see about these topics elsewhere in the secular and even Jewish press.
At JNS, you get the facts about Israel and Jewish issues without the bias that so often tilts the argument against the Jewish state. JNS articles and columns are republished every week by digital outlets and print newspapers across the globe. But in the age of round-the-clock news coverage, advertising and syndication revenues are not enough to support our continued growth. We need your financial help to keep JNS on target as we continue our fair and accurate reporting.
