Event for Human Rights and Equality!

Sports unite – education brings peace.
Dialogue eliminates national and religious hatred!

On Tuesday, March 29th, the President of the American College of Greece, the members of the Administration, teachers and students welcomed representatives of the Center for Jewish Impact, players and executives of the basket-ball team Maccabi Tel Aviv, representatives of the World Zionist Organization and the Athens Jewish Community, to a unique event, which was hosted in the fully renovated indoor Gym of Pierce.

The event is a part of the joint program “One Team – One People” which, through sports, demolishes borders, bridges differences and brings athletes and kids from all over the world closer, in a “game,” where all players compete on the same team, united, like one nation.

The students of the Jewish program of Pierce, the players of the basket-ball team of the Lyceum, and students from other classes had the opportunity to discuss with the guests, to participate in a basket-ball activity with the Maccabi players, and most importantly, to have an experience of brotherhood and solidarity and tolerance of diversity!

All together, we say NO to xenophobia and discrimination. We secure our society against antisemitism and hate speech, we set democracy and respect for human rights as the ideal protection against all evil!
