We're happy to announce the launch of the EmbraceRace Podcast!

Early Childhood Virtual Summit 2022

On December 3, 2022, EmbraceRace joined with Race Forward's H.E.A.L Together and other partner organizations to put on our first EmbraceRace Early Childhood Summit. We featured four "tiny talks," a panel and breakout sessions all unified by this theme: Defending and Celebrating Racial Learning in Early Childhood.

Thanks to our partners, participants, and speakers for making our first Early Childhood Summit a success! Happily, you can watch or read the presentations in English here. We will add the videos in transcripts in Spanish soon. Thank you for your patience!
