Multi-Cultural Resources


Anti-Racist Action Network : This is the statement of this organization’s mission taken from the website: “Anti-Racist Action is an international movement of people dedicated to stopping racism, sexism, homophobia and other forms of bigotry from harming our communities. We work hard to "expose, oppose, and confront" hate in whatever form threatens the diversity and safety of the places we live in and the people we live with. We also firmly believe in building a fun, diverse, liberated and explicitly anti-racist, anti-sexist and anti-homophobic youth culture"

Cultural Survival: Its mission is “Promoting the rights, voices, and visions of indigenous peoples…”. Takes a worldwide look at how, and whether, the culture of indigenous peoples worldwide can survive. An online e-journal, Cultural Survival, has an extensive list of articles in its current and back issues.

Shen’s Books: This is a wonderful site if you are searching for children’s books featuring characters from just about any ethnic or cultural group you can imagine. Organized primarily by topic (including fabrics), one of the more delightful topic areas is Cinderella – here, you can find a Cinderella-like story featuring a child from almost any heritage (Mexican, Hmong, Philippine, African, Russian, Jewish, Egyptian, Appalachian, Ojibwa, Cajun, Algonquin, Caribbean, Spanish, Chinese, Vietnamese, Indonesian, Korean, Irish, Iraqi, Persian, Male (not Mali; male as opposed to female), Hawaiian, and so on). There is a topic area with books featuring children with special needs, and a topic area featuring children in interracial families.
