One-To-One: Anti-Bias Program
“I’ve always had this idea that we’re all more than the worst thing we’ve ever done.”
- civil rights lawyer Bryan Stephenson
The One to One program is a future-oriented, solutions-oriented, bias-reduction program designed for offenders of bias/hate-related misdemeanors and higher-level crimes. The curriculum is offered by the Museum of Tolerance as a leader in the field of anti-bias education and enhanced by a neuro-scientific coaching approach. Whether part of a diversion program or condition of sentencing, probation, or parole, One-to-One is an alternative placement and specialized treatment for bias remediation. We welcome referrals from justice partners in LA.
For each case, the MOT assigns a facilitator who engages the client in dialogue, critical thinking, self-awareness, empathy, and ultimately coaches them through an action plan for sustained positive decision-making.
The 12-hour program includes:
• Interview and pre-survey to begin a relationship and assess needs
• Customized experience at the Museum (or virtually) designed to enhance understanding of human dignity and our collective responsibility to preserve it.
• Private Dialogue with a special speaker (credible witness) from the targeted group or a former hate crimes offender
• Coaching sessions using neuro-science based planning tools for goal-setting
• Essay, journal writing, or artistic representation project (photographs of community, people, videos) on the experience presented to a probation officer or another justice partner.
The individualized approach in the safe, respectful environment of the MOT, led by compassionate facilitation professionals provides a nurturing opportunity for honest dialogue and new pathways. Clients leave with a new way of thinking about the world and their role in it.
