Action Plan: MUSEUM

The Museum of Tolerance hosted a series of workshops for students, teachers and administrators. These full one-day and two-day workshops created mirrors for self reflection as well as windows onto the systemic inequities in the docuseries and in attendees’ own classrooms and schools.
