Add to My LockerWeb Site
Tolerance.org

Developed by the Southern Poverty Law Center, this site offers an extremely rich amount of information and materials to help fight discrimination and hatred in all its forms. The organization defines tolerance in this way: "We view tolerance as a way of thinking and feeling — but most importantly, of acting — that gives us peace in our individuality, respect for those unlike us, the wisdom to discern humane values and the courage to act upon them."

"There are several reasons that I love My eCoach. The largest one is that it has a locker where I can store what I have created and find it later. I have made a whole bunch of things online and then forgotten where they are and sometimes even that they exist. In My eCoach I can go to the Locker and find the projects that I made in the past and am sometimes surprised at what I find!

I have also met long-term friends through My eCoach who I communicate with in other ways. I know I have not used most of My eCoach to its capacity and it is really amazing the options that it does give you."
