Southern Poverty Law Center, Inc.
One of the 3 major prongs of the SPLC's strategy to achieve equal justice and equal opportunity is through Teaching Tolerance: "We’re dedicated to reducing prejudice, improving intergroup relations and supporting equitable school experiences for our nation's children. Our Teaching Tolerance project combats prejudice among our nation’s youth while promoting equality, inclusiveness and equitable learning environments in the classroom. We produce an array of anti-bias resources that we distribute, free of charge, to educators across the country – award-winning classroom documentaries, lesson plans and curricula, Teaching Tolerance magazine, and more."
Facing History and Ourselves Inc.
As a former history teacher, I used this curriculum to teach my students about actively contributing to a more positive society. The lessons we taught still stay with me personally, and I witnessed permanent transformation among many of my students. The mission of FHAO: "Our mission is to engage students of diverse backgrounds in an examination of racism, prejudice, and antisemitism in order to promote the development of a more humane and informed citizenry. By studying the historical development of the Holocaust and other examples of genocide, students make the essential connection between history and the moral choices they confront in their own lives."
Rethinking Schools Limited
They are pushing the school to be more equitable for all..."it remains firmly committed to equity and to the vision that public education is central to the creation of a humane, caring, multiracial democracy. While writing for a broad audience, Rethinking Schools emphasizes problems facing urban schools, particularly issues of race." Rethinking Schools is also one of two coordinating organizations for "The Zinn Education Project," which supports the teaching of Howard Zinn's book "A People's History of the United States" to help equip students with the analytical tools to make sense of — and improve — the world today.
