Internet resources : LUSENET : Diversity coalitions : One Thread

This thread is for Internet resources that are relevant to the work we're doing here. Let's try to keep the entries here be ones that have long-term usefulness, rather than short-term topicality. If there is a website you mention in a regular weekly thread that would be appropriate, give it a short annotated mention here too.

You may want to occasionally save online articles in case you need to cut and paste text or forward the article to someone. If you use Internet Explorer, click "File" the "save as" and give it an appropriate file name such as "Woodstock Times 2.19.01 board interviews" or whatever.

Raven Days Excellent resource for information on bullying and activism. "Schools should truly be safe for all their students. Someday perhaps they will be.

That is why Raven Days was created." -- from the introduction
