What We Know
3 - 5 year olds categorize people based on race
cause greater racial bias
(Richeson & Nussbaum, 2004).
Reading fiction improves social empathy
(Kidd & Castano, 2013).
In January of 2018, we launched our pilot program with 31 families from 10 cities & towns. Overall, our families increased their comfort and frequency in talking about race and racism. Click below to learn more about our impact.
We know there are organizations in other cities across the U.S. actively engaging families in racial justice work. Are you one of them? If so, be in touch!
