Welcome to Learning for Justice

Welcome to Learning for Justice! You might know us by our original name, Teaching Tolerance. Our program was founded in 1991 by the Southern Poverty Law Center. 

We provide 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 inclusive school communities where children and youth are respected, valued and welcome participants.
