U.S. Announces Collaboration with UNESCO to teach anti-racism curriculum: Teaching Respect for All

The United States government has announced a partnership between the U.S. Department of State, the Government of Brazil, and UNESCO to develop and promote an anti-racism curriculum entitled “Teaching Respect for All.”

The curriculum will be developed over the next two years, after which time it will be disseminated worldwide by UNESCO through education ministries and the extensive network of UNESCO-affiliated schools.

The United States’ participation in this initiative underscores the enduring U.S. commitment to combating racism and racial discrimination. The initiative was first announced as an outcome of President Obama’s March 2011 visit to Brazil.
