Our Belief

Systemic racism is the most devastating factor contributing to the diminished capacity of all children, especially children of color and American Indian children, to achieve at the highest levels, and contributes to the fracturing of the communities that nurture
and support them.

Why Race?

Why Explore Race? Race matters – in society and in our schools. It is critical for educators to address racial issues in order to uncover personal and institutional biases that prevent students of color and American Indian students from reaching their fullest potential...
