Learning for Justice seeks to uphold the mission of the Southern Poverty Law Center: to be a catalyst for racial justice in the South and beyond, working in partnership with communities to dismantle white supremacy, strengthen intersectional movements and advance the human rights of all people.  They provide free resources to educators—teachers, administrators, counselors and other practitioners—who work with children from kindergarten through high school.

The Center for Racial Justice in Education’s mission is to train and empower educators to dismantle patterns of racism and injustice in our schools and communities. At the Center for Racial Justice in Education, we envision a world where all young people learn and thrive in racially equitable, liberating, and empowering educational spaces.

The highly visible image of the Black male in America is a frequent topic of scrutiny, conjecture, and opinion. But what does research into the reality of the Black male experience have to say? Helping scholars, journalists, and educators discover answers to that question is the goal of the Black Male Education Research Collection. This site pulls together peer-reviewed research from scholarly publications and features interviews with research authors so that those looking for these answers can find them in one place. The information found within this site often provides a counter-narrative to the prevailing beliefs about American Black males.
