The goal is to provide educators and others interested in diversity, multicultural resources to foster understanding and promote peace and justice not only in the classroom but also in society. We will provide lesson plans for multicultural children’s books, links to sites that provide and foster positive aspects of various ethnic, cultural, religious, and gender groups. An example of diversity resources can be found on our GLBT bibliography provided in our Children’s Bibliography pages.
