The Diversity Project

The AMTP initiated the Diversity Project to support schools in their efforts to create safe multicultural school environments for students from all backgrounds. Through Diversity Project programming both in and out of the classroom, youth are empowered to recognize the value of diversity and inclusive participation. Students learn about the struggle for social justice throughout history and the harm of racial, religious, cultural, and gender oppression.

“People are not who you think they are. You must get to know them.”

“It makes me think not to judge someone by the way they look.”

“I never realized how much I cared about what others think about me.”
