Choose Your Voice

Choose Your Voice is a FREE, ERAC certified curriculum-based resource that empowers students to speak out against racism, antisemitism, and discrimination of all forms. The program won the 2010 Race Relations Foundation Award of Excellence, and is geared for students in grades 6 and up.

The kit gives teachers tools to help their students learn about the dangers of hatred and stereotypes, and find their voices to combat them. It encourages students not to be bystanders or perpetrators but heroes, by speaking out.

The kit is available in French, comes with a compelling DVD, and is adaptable for ESL and gifted learners.
