“Diversity Without Division Awareness Campaign”
Project Lead: Irshad Manji, Founder, Moral Courage ED | HxK12 Education Community
Let Grow, the national nonprofit that advocates independent thinking and emotional resilience in young people, has been awarded a HxA Flexible Funding Opportunity grant to advance its work in K-12 schools.
The “Diversity Without Division” campaign will introduce school leaders across America to Moral Courage ED, a project of Let Grow that equips students (and their teachers!) to hear, not fear, different perspectives. Moral Courage ED is already living up to its mission by cultivating allies as ideologically diverse as Facing History and Ourselves and the Cato Institute.
With this grant, Let Grow will distribute to 2,000 school leaders a copy of Don’t Label Me: How to Do Diversity Without Inflaming the Culture Wars. Written by Moral Courage ED founder and Oxford University fellow Irshad Manji, Don’t Label Me is the inspiration behind several professional development tools, including a signature online course, that educators are increasingly adopting.
If you’re a K-12 leader, or know someone who is, request the book that Jonathan Hait calls “humble, loving, humane” and Chris Rock calls “genius.”
