Take a Stand

Not in Our Town: Class Actions, a documentary about three campuses that took a stand against intolerance, premieres tonight (2/13) on PBS.
Educators inspired by these stories will find a range of resources online to launch similar efforts in their own communities. To coincide with the new film, Not In Our Town is offering mini-grants for teachers and art and video contests for students.
