RaceBridges for Schools
Type of Organization: Non-governmental - Non-Profit
Home Country: United States
The RaceBridges For Schools website was created following the successful student organization, Catholic Schools Opposing Racism (COR), which ran for eight years (2000-2008) in the Chicago Illinois area. This outreach project was sponsored by Angels Studio and brought together Archdiocese of Chicago high school students from city and suburbs for suppers and workshops to focus on race relations and ways to make their schools even more inclusive.
This non-sectarian website continues that work by offering educators online classroom tools to engage their students in the passion and satisfaction of working for racial justice and safe and welcoming schools. It is our mission to celebrate the challenges and beauty of diversity and the deeper human connections that can bridge differences and resolve conflicts. We stand as witnesses to our common dignity, creativity and resilience and hope to offer resources that can promote a more peaceful world.
In November 2013, O’Halloran Diversity Productions took over the management of the Racebridges For Schools (RacebridgesForSchols.com) and Racebridges Videos (RacebridgesVideos.com) websites. Previously, these sites were sponsored and operated by Angels Studio, a communications ministry of the Roman Catholic Order, the Society of The Divine Word.
