Affirmative Action and Diversity Project: A Web Page for Research presents diverse opinions regarding topics in Affirmative Action. Rather than taking a pro or con position, the site offers many different opinions on the debates surrounding the issues of affirmative action. This site provides scholars, students, and the interested public with articles, theoretical analyses, policy documents, current legislative updates, and an annotated bibliography of research and teaching materials. Based at the University of California, Santa Barbara, the site contains a substantial amount of information on California politics and Proposition 209.


The Dialogue to Action Initiative Web Site was developed in 1998 to help enable more people to experience the dialogue process and to help dialogue groups integrate talk with action more effectively. The Web site provides assistance and resources to individuals and groups seeking to initiate conversations on issues such as racism and discrimination. The initiative Web site provides information to dialogue organizers, facilitators, and researchers about the basics of dialogue, organizing dialogue, and enabling groups to move effectively from dialogue to community action. The site also offers a resources section; a regularly-updated Community page with important news, resources, and information for the dialogue field; and a listserv for leaders in the intergroup dialogue fields. Run by Sandy Heierbacher, the initiative has been supported by the Corporation for National Service, the Center for Living Democracy, the Village Foundation, and the School for International Training.
