Teaching Tolerance, a Project of the Southern Poverty Law Center

Founded in 1991 by the Southern Poverty Law Center, Teaching Tolerance is dedicated to reducing prejudice, improving intergroup relations and supporting equitable school experiences for our nation’s children.

The project provides free educational materials to teachers and other school practitioners in the U.S. and Canada. The self-titled magazine is sent to 450,000 educators twice annually, and tens of thousands of educators use the free curricular kits. More than 5,000 schools participate in the Teaching Tolerance annual Mix It Up at Lunch Day program.

The project’s teaching materials have won two Oscars, an Emmy, and more than 20 honors from the Association of Educational Publishers, including two Golden Lamp Awards, the industry’s highest honor. Scientific surveys demonstrate that the Teaching Tolerance programs help students learn respect for differences and bolster teacher practice.
