The Equity Literacy Institute is the newest of EdChange's projects and initiatives. It is a collective of educators, scholars, and professional development specialists who have embraced "equity literacy" as a guiding framework for equity and justice work in schools and communities. This framework is comprised of the knowledge and skills educators need to become a threat to the existence of inequity in our spheres of influence. In addition to offering free equity literacy resources, we offer workshops, consulting, and assessment services for schools, districts, colleges, universities, and community organizations.
The Multicultural Pavilion is an award-winning Website housing free resources for educators and activists dedicated to equity and social justice in schools and society. It was conceived and developed by Paul Gorski in 1995, making it the oldest on-going EdChange project. In some ways, it is more of a collection than a single project. It includes:
- the Teachers Corner, with curricular and pedagogical tools for educators at all levels;
- the EdChange Research Room, with original articles and essays about education, equity, diversity, and social justice;
- a collection of exercises and activities that can be adapted for classroom or workshop use;
- access to dozens of printable lists, tools, and fact sheets related to philosophies of equity, diversity, and social justice developed by EdChange and the Equity Literacy Institute;
- the Equity Awareness Quizzes along with answer keys; and
- a variety of other resources, interactive possibilities, and educational tools.

Teachers Against Poverty, Not Against People Experiencing Poverty is a Facebook gathering place (or "group") for educators who are concerned about the prevalence of deficit-oriented responses to class-based educational outcome disparities. It is a community of educators and activists who are committed to more transformative, structural-level responses. If you are concerned with approaches and frameworks like "mindsets of poverty" or "grit" and want to connect with educators who envision, embrace, and enact more meaningful approaches based on understandings of economic justice, structural equity, and equity literacy, we hope you will join the conversation. Share and find resources here. The community is about 2,000 strong and constantly growing.
