Teach the Children

60-Second Public Service Announcement by Phylicia Rashad

Our children learn by watching us. They will learn tolerance only if we are tolerant. They will learn respect, only if we are respectful. Iím Phylicia Rashad and Iíd like to encourage you to teach your children to value others despite the differences, and to let them know they can fight discrimination and intolerance. Make sure they know that discrimination is not just wrong; itís illegal. Itís against the law to discriminate because of race, color, religion, age, sex, national origin, or disability. And if discrimination happens to them, or someone they know, teach them to take action, to act on their beliefs, to call the United States Commission on Civil Rights at 1-800-552-6843. Teach tolerance, because open minds open doors for all our children.
