Our Impact

With each new piece of content or webinar we publish our community of parents, guardians, educators, and advocates grows. In turn they impact the lives of children and our communities to exponential effect.

  • "When my daughter turned 3, I started thinking about how I can raise her with honest conversations about race. I’m white and my partner is Asian, and I didn’t have much context or even comfort talking about race. I turned to EmbraceRace and the webinars and info graphics were really empowering, just to provide the research and stories I needed to gain more comfort in talking about race." -Parent or Guardian
  • "Webinars empower me  (white mom) to be more informed in raising my (biracial) sons. I feel more informed and love your approach." -Parent or Guardian
  • "I work at an organization that supports family child care educators, and we have used and distributed ER tip sheets as part of our work to promote equity and equity education among the educators in our networks." -Educator
  • "I am a teacher so I am using every and all articles to better educate myself and make my classroom a more inclusive space for everyone." -Educator
  • "Our organization, Indigo Cultural Center, does lots of trainings with professionals who support early childhood teachers (quality coaches, mental health consultants, community trainers). We list EmbraceRace in our resource list every single time. More specifically, we go to EmbraceRace for specific scripted examples of how parents and teachers talk with young children about race and social justice. Then we spend time processing how they might adapt these conversations themselves." -Educator
