Organizations Dedicated to Anti-Racist Parenting
EmbraceRace was founded in early 2016 by two parents who set out to create the community and gather the resources they needed (need!) to meet the challenges faced by those raising children in a world where race matters. EmbraceRace has many resources for parents, including webinars, articles, action guides, stories, and children’s book recommendations. Examples of recent webinars and accompanying resources include Addressing Racial Injustice with Children and Drawing Across the Color Line with Kids.
