Teaching Tolerance was established in 1991 as a project of the Southern Poverty Law Center, an internationally renowned organization dedicated to fighting hate and promoting tolerance. Its mission is to help educators bring tolerance into the classroom, and it does this brilliantly by providing them with free, high-quality classroom materials on tolerance and diversity, including a semiannual magazine, multimedia kits, and handbooks.
