Andrew Grant-Thomas, who is Black, and Melissa Giraud, who is multiracial, started the nonprofit when they found few resources to help them talk with their young daughters about race.
At EmbraceRace, we're working hard to develop and point to resources, community spaces and opportunities that will support all caregivers wanting to raise color brave kids. How're we doing that? Check in here for updates about EmbraceRace programs, community happenings and media coverage.
