But because we haven’t had the luxury of being equipped and empowered in this way, we may need a lot of help and support.
Embrace Race is a wonderful online community of parents, teachers, experts, and other caring adults helping us meet the challenges that race poses to our children, families, and communities. Embrace Race invites us to join their conversation to become effective racial justice advocates for all children.
