Learning for Justice (formerly known as Teaching Tolerance) seeks to uphold the Southern Poverty Law Center’s mission: to be a catalyst for racial justice in the South and beyond, working in partnership with communities to dismantle white supremacy, strengthen intersectional movements and advance the human rights of all people. This mission is supported through focused work with educators, students, caregivers and communities. Building on its strong foundation of providing educational resources, Learning for Justice is expanding engagement opportunities that center justice in communities, especially in the South. The program publishes a magazine and provides free educational resources — articles, guides, lessons, films, webinars, frameworks, podcasts and more — to foster shared learning and reflection. Engagement opportunities — conferences, workshops, and school and community partnerships — provide space where people can harness collective power and take action to realize change. Through this cycle of education and engagement, the program aims to build meaningful relationships with communities.


KDP is the champion for future and new teachers from campus to classroom. They deliver guidance and solutions to the particular issues facing teachers across the United States, while maintaining a global perspective. Above all, they are a reliable and research-based source of best practices for the teaching field as a whole. Their mission is to contribute to the development of excellent teachers, to build thriving communities and to create lifelong opportunities by providing quality, equitable education for all.


The coalition is composed of organizations and individuals engaged in work nationally, regionally, and/or locally around Ethnic Studies, Black Lives Matter in Schools, Indigenous studies and anti-racist, decolonial K-12 education. The membership is organized by regions by sectors/roles (i.e. youth, educators, organizers, etc.), and by committees.

A living memorial to the Holocaust, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum inspires citizens and leaders worldwide to confront hatred, prevent genocide, and promote human dignity. Federal support guarantees the Museum’s permanent place on the National Mall, and its far-reaching educational programs and global impact are made possible by generous donors.

Located among our national monuments to freedom on the National Mall, the Museum provides a powerful lesson in the fragility of freedom, the myth of progress, and the need for vigilance in preserving democratic values. With unique power and authenticity, the Museum teaches millions of people each year about the dangers of unchecked hatred and the need to prevent genocide. And we encourage them to act, cultivating a sense of moral responsibility among our citizens so that they will respond to the monumental challenges that confront our world.
