These Hands Don't Hurt
This is the national philanthropy of Alpha Kappa Lambda. In essence, handprints are cut out of colored paper and people sign their names on the hands and pledge that their hands will never be used to commit interpersonal acts of violence. Another way this initiative is implemented is through students placing their hand in colored paint and leaving their print on a white banner. This symbolizes both the diversity and unity of the campus, and serves as a visual representation of how many people have pledged to resolve matters in a non-violent way.

Anti-Defamation League: 101 Ways to Combat Prejudice -- Close the Book on Hate
Shortly after the Columbine High School tragedy in 1999, Barnes & Noble Chairman Leonard Riggio met with Abraham Foxman, ADL National Director. The two wanted to find a way to work together that would help counter the destructive trend of school shootings and hate crimes. The result is "Close the Book on Hate," which is designed to use education to help break the cycle of prejudice and hatred. The program kicked off in September 2000, and has successfully involved thousands of people around the country.
