Tolerance and Diversity

The tragic events of Sept. 11, 2001, have brought several new topics to the forefront of the national news. Following the attacks, there were incidents of backlash against Arab- and Muslim-Americans. Acts of violence such as these tend to rear their head in tense times of emotion. While heated debates over terrorism and revenge are only likely to occupy the front pages for the short-term, hopefully the topic of racial and ethnic tolerance will remain on people's minds for some time.

The following resources offer information on increasing tolerance and diversity in society, beyond Sept. 11.

  • Ontario Consultants on Religious Tolerance
    Affiliated with About.com, this alternative religion site offers several essays on the implications of the World Trade Center attacks on tolerance. The site also offers insight on dozens of the religions practiced around the world and encourages people to accept that all religions have a right to exist, regardless of an individual's decision of which religion to practice.

  • Poynter Institute
    The all-encompassing data source for journalists has a diversity digest and interesting articles on how the media should expand its diversity reporting after Sept. 11 and incorporate it into everyday coverage.

  • Tolerance.org
    Find advice on how you can increase awareness and tolerance, especially of Arab-Americans and Sikhs. Tolerance.org also offers news about other current events involving hate, the history of tolerance and "101 tools for tolerance."




  • Beliefnet
    This site explores the spiritual side of existence and examines tolerance from a religious mindset.

  • Museum of Tolerance
    Founded by the Simon Wiesenthal Center, this Los Angeles museum challenges visitors to confront racism and bigotry. Virtual exhibits explore the life of Jews during the Holocaust.

  • UNESCO
    "Intolerance is increasingly seen as a major threat to democracy, peace and security," according to the United Nations. This site has transcripts of UN proposals for the Year of Tolerance in 1995.

  • Learn to Question
    A portal that examines the multiple facets of hate and diversity, this site offers information on hate groups, gender issues, self-identity, multi-racialism and social movements.

  • Poisoning the Web
    Modern hate often manifests itself on the Internet. The Anti-Defamation League offers a guide to these sites so that you can be informed of the different messages that hate groups offer.

  • All One Heart
    Spread diversity and tolerance to your friends with greeting cards sponsored by this nonprofit charity.
