Diversity & Inclusion

Multicultural education, equity, and social justice education resources. 
Books transport readers to other worlds – and not only fantasy lands where animals talk and magic is commonplace. The stories on this list introduce kids to cultures and worlds that are much closer by ... and just as fascinating!
The Multicultural Resource Center (MRC) was formed to address the lack of ethnic, cultural cross-community understanding in schools and communities in Ithaca by starting a multicultural resource library located in the Beverly J. Martin public elementary school. MRC engages in cultural and systemic transformation by building with our communities to eliminate barriers to racial justice, cultural dignity, equity and inclusion, and indigenous rights. This website is a resource hub that offers tools, research, tips, and curricula for working towards racial equity. 
Teaching Tolerance 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.
