Reserve for September Teacher Training Workshops

Plan Early for Morris Dees Event

Plan Early for Morris Dees Event

Set aside November 7, 2002, to take your classes to a 10 AM presentation by Morris Dees, National Chairman of the Teaching Tolerance project of the Southern Poverty Law Center.

In our post-September 11 society, his message is particularly appropriate for today's students, who, in this high-tech world and with instant access to world events, have become more receptive to analyzing the motives behind such inhumane events and to understanding the dangers of discrimination.

Teaching Tolerance has produced numerous high-quality materials, which are described separately on our Links and Resources page.

As chief trial counsel for the Southern Poverty Law Center, Mr. Dees has successfully tracked and brought domestic hate perpetrators to justice over the last 20 years.

Don't miss this unique opportunity!  We will be sending flyers to teachers in our database when school reopens.  If you have questions or would like to reserve space in advance, please call us at (505) 242-4737, or e-mail us at:
