Our Vision

Learning for Justice (LFJ), a project of the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), plays a key role in achieving SPLC’s vision of “a world in which everyone can thrive and the ideals of equity, justice, and liberation are a reality for all.” We’re driven by a passion for social justice, a deep belief that education is the best way to realize this world, and a firm commitment to making sure that every student has the opportunity to learn and thrive.

The Learning for Justice Educator Fund supports educators who embrace and embed social justice, anti-bias and anti-racist principles throughout their classrooms and schools. We seek to collaboratively build educators’ capacity to do this. We believe these approaches in education encourage children and young people to challenge injustice and learn how to be agents of change in their own lives and communities.

Learning for Justice’s Educator Fund offers the opportunity to work with LFJ to address systemic inequities within education. Throughout our partnership, we offer ongoing guidance and critical resources. With help from your expertise about your own school community, we intend to collaboratively generate innovative solutions that promote affirming school climates, promote student action and raise everyone’s consciousness.

Welcome to Learning for Justice—Formerly Teaching Tolerance!

Our work has evolved in the last 30 years, from reducing prejudice to tackling systemic injustice. So we’ve chosen a new name that better reflects that evolution: Learning for Justice.
