About Walk a Mile / 2012 Hours Against Hate Campaign
The 2012 Hours Against Hate campaign is the second year that the US State Department has run a public program to promote cultural and global tolerance. After the great success of the first year, it seemed only fitting to unite with the 2012 London Olympics to create an innovative campaign that touches on the central themes of both bodies. Inspired by the saying 'to walk a mile in someone else's shoes', this unique campaign has the real potential to reach a global audience and open the way to real change.
