Slides 5 & 6: Next, research and identify a program, preferably one that exists in your community or state, which provides services related to this policy.

Slides 7, 8, & 9: Analyze the strengths and weaknesses of both the policy and the program in terms of how well it addresses multiculturalism and diversity.
