Diversity Policy

Dayton Holocaust Resource Center Diversity Policy

The Holocaust Education Committee is an independent entity, but the Jewish Federation of Greater Dayton is our fiscal agent.

The Committee and its public service, the Dayton Holocaust Resource Center, is dedicated to defending and supporting tolerance and diversity as its most important goal – after all, teaching respect for all people, regardless of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, national origin, age, or disability, is the whole point of Holocaust education.  Diversity is our reason for existing. We undertake regular evaluation of our efforts and progress in this regard.  About half of our committee are not Jewish, and almost all the teachers, students and researchers we help educate are not Jewish.  We receive and answer requests for information through our website and Facebook page from all over the world. Our resource collection at Wright State University and our exhibit at the National Museum of the United States Air Force are accessible to all, and follow the diversity policies of those institutions.  Our annual art and writing contests are open to all students in public and private schools, and to home-schooled students, in southwest Ohio.  We offer students, teachers and parents information on using the Holocaust as an example of the dangers of bullying.  Each year we co-sponsor a Holocaust-related event at Sinclair College, complying with their diversity and accessibility policies.  We are a member of the Association of Holocaust Organizations.
