Learning for Justice

location_on United States

Learning for Justice seeks to be a catalyst for racial justice to advance the rights of all people.

Learning for Justice provides free resources to educators—teachers, administrators, counselors and other practitioners—who work with children from kindergarten through high school. Educators use our materials to supplement the curriculum, to inform their practices, and to create civil and inclusive school communities where children are respected, valued and welcome participants.

The fact is, tolerance is not justice. It isn’t a sufficient description of the work we do or of the world we want.

About the innovation

We know that justice is the heart of what we want for our young people and for society at large.

Learning for Justice seeks to uphold the mission of the Southern Poverty Law Center: 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.

We support this mission by focusing our work with educators, students, caregivers and communities in these areas:

  • Culture and Climate
  • Curriculum and Instruction
  • Leadership
  • Family and Community Engagement

Since our founding as Teaching Tolerance in 1991, we have had a strong foundation of providing educational resources, and we are building on that foundation with expanded engagement opportunities for communities, especially in the South.

Our free educational resources—articles, guides, lessons, films, webinars, frameworks and more—help foster shared learning and reflection for educators, young people, caregivers and all community members. Our engagement opportunities—conferences, workshops, and school and community partnerships—provide space where people can harness collective power and take action.

Through this continual cycle of education and engagement, we hope that we can build and maintain meaningful relationships with communities and we can all move from learning for justice to creating it.

There is nothing more important than doing culturally responsive work with all educators and students right now. I have had the opportunity to use Teaching Tolerance first hand and it is well thought out and can and will impact change. I could not advocate any higher for this innovation.
Love this. Especially in the current climate when we're finally embracing conversations around anti-racism taking place - people need help understanding how best to approach these conversations with young people. The workshops look interesting and engaging, as well as practical.
