This week, the Peoria Regional Office of Education will be hosting the Mobile Museum of Tolerance, also known as the MMOT. Developed in collaboration with the Midwest office of the Simon Wiesenthal Center and the Illinois State Board of Education, the MMOT is a free, traveling museum and classroom. Led by an Illinois licensed educator, it aims to inspire people to use their voices to speak up against anti-Semitism, bullying, racism, intolerance, and hate.
Classes from Manual Academy, Peoria High School, and Richwoods High School will be able to tour the traveling museum as well as engage with the dynamic classes it offers. The bus will be parked in prominent locations in front of each high school throughout the week, but exhibits will not be open to the public.
