The Respect for All Project

GroundSpark's Respect For All Project facilitated the development of inclusive, bias-free schools and communities by providing media resources, support and training to youth, educators and service providers.

Since the Respect for All Project began, more than a million students from across the U.S. and all over the world have seen our films. As a result, they have participated in life-changing discussions about: gender, culture and sexuality; family diversity; bias and bullying; school climate; LGBT-inclusivity; violence prevention; and acting for change. In addition, the Respect for All Project has trained tens of thousands of educators, social workers, school counselors, youth service providers, parents and community members in all parts of the United States. We have worked with a wide range of national, state and local partners, including leaders in the fields of education, youth development, health and mental health, school climate, gender and sexuality, violence prevention, and the safe schools movement.
