It takes collaboration to create safe and healthy communities.

The Museum plays a leading role in forging partnerships with community organizations, schools, agencies and NGOs, to advance positive youth development and promote civic engagement for all ages.

Our ongoing partnerships include:

Cesar E. Chavez Foundation:

Each year the Museum celebrates the life and legacy of Cesar Chavez on Cesar Chavez Day and with the help of the Foundation, provides service learning education and inspiration to hundreds of participating students throughout the year.

GLSEN and No Name Calling Week:

The Museum of Tolerance is a national partner in the No Name Calling Week campaign aimed at stopping name-calling and creating safer and more affirming schools for all students.

Go For Broke National Educational Center:

This organization teaches and preserves the memory of American veterans of Japanese ancestry whose heroism and sacrifices during WWII triumphed over racism and intolerance. We honor this legacy by showing segments of the Hanashi oral history videos everyday in the Museum’s second floor viewing room and on our website.

Loyola Marymount University’s Clinical Art Therapy Department:

Faculty and students have partnered with us to provide innovative arts-based learning workshops for children and their families, including summer camp programs and Family Sundays.

LA Opera:

The Museum of Tolerance has partnered with this prestigious arts organization for 3 seasons of opera camp. Performances of Brundibar and a recent stage reading of The Cat with the Yellow Star attracted enthusiastic audiences at the Museum.

Los Angeles Police Department:

For over ten years, the Museum of Tolerance has partnered with the LAPD to provide cutting-edge law enforcement training.

Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department:

The Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department has been a long time partner of the Museum of Tolerance. The Tools for Tolerance® program serves the entire department in law enforcement training.

California Commission on Peace Officers Standards and Training:

The administrative arm that sets minimum selection and training standards for California law enforcement has worked with the Museum since 1996 to certify the Tools for Tolerance® for Law Enforcement programs.

Supporting all of these efforts are the good corporate citizens who provide the funds and in-kind contributions to help our programs thrive. Through help from our Corporate Partners, the Museum of Tolerance serves approximately 350,000 people per year in customized tours, workshops, exhibitions, and special events.
