Dr. Mercedes Fisher, professor of education, has been invited by the Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles to create an interactive environment for the museum's Tools for Tolerance program. As a curriculum developer, Fisher will design and implement face-to-face and online training for law enforcement, educators, and the National Institute Against Hate Crimes.
Fisher is currently adapting the Tools for Tolerance for Law Enforcement courses for online learning, which will help uniformed and civilian personnel understand the dynamics of racism, bigotry, and discrimination and engage them in discussions about tolerance, diversity, and effective responses to situations in law enforcement.
By sharing information and facilitating discussions through the e-learning platform, Fisher hopes to create a forum for participants to discuss issues of tolerance and respect and share strategies for integrating those principles into their work in the field.
