The Teaching Tolerance website is a comprehensive resource for educators, serving as clearinghouse for information on anti-bias programs and activities for use in schools. Developed by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), a nonprofit civil rights organization, this website houses their Teaching Tolerance program, which includes a variety of free resources for promoting tolerance, including documentaries , books, lesson plans and activities, with the goal of cultivating inclusive, nurturing school environments where equality and justice are upheld.

Also available is the Teaching Tolerance magazine for educators, a forum for exchanging current information and ideas on teaching diversity. Of note is the “Mix It Up at Lunch Day” initiative, a student-led part of the program, which invites students to sit with someone new at lunchtime just for one day, in an effort to encourage students to identify, question and cross social boundaries.
