Resources

A core part of our Springmatter mission is to provide up-to-date resources for anyone seeking assistance or trying to learn more about diverse populations. We encourage you to reach out to us or one of the many organizations and individuals listed here — we are adding resources every day.

Through our network of community organizations, companies, schools, and advocates, we hope to foster a better understanding of diverse groups – and illustrate how we can all be so different, and yet the same.

If you have services to offer marginalized and disadvantaged populations and would like to be part of our network and community, simply send us an email through our Join Us tab.

It is well known that we all have inherent biases and basic instincts to be wary of those who are different. But we also know those same instincts often produce irrational fears that, if left unchecked, become the basis for discrimination and segregation.
By providing easy access to resources on all differences, we hope to replace biases and irrational fears with the truth. Everyone is different in countless ways and diversity is not only intrinsic to the human condition, it is essential to our survival. This is more important today than perhaps any time in recent history. In the words of Dr. King, “We must all learn to live together as brothers, or perish together as fools.”
We hope the information we provide will help marginalized and disadvantaged people find the help they need in their communities; provide resources to companies, nonprofits, and educational institutions seeking to promote diversity and inclusivity; and bring to light the science, evidence, and real-life stories that will change hearts and minds.

Stay Tuned

In collaboration with the Martin Luther King, Jr. Research and Education Institute at Stanford University, we are preparing to launch a major expansion of their Liberation Curriculum, demonstrating the power of diversity and how we must all work together if we are to live peacefully and productively in what Dr. King called our great ‘world house.’
Stay tuned for future announcements on the launch of this initiative, to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Dr. King, April 4th, 2018.
