We can raise an anti-racist generation. Talk to children about racism early and often. Take the pledge today.
BEHIND THE SCENES INTERVIEWS WITH FAMILIES FROM OUR FILM, DEAR WHITE PARENTS, DISCUSSING WHY VOLUNTEERED TO BE A PART OF THIS INITIATIVE
ONE MILLION TALKS
We can all help raise an anti-racist generation, but White parents and families have a unique opportunity to help create a new reality around racism for the next generation. In a society where identifying or being perceived as White comes with many, distinct advantages and power, the ability to positively influence the hearts, minds, and behaviors of the next generation could change the 400-year-old trajectory of racism.
Take the pledge.
“Why Speak Directly to White Parents?”
Out of necessity, Black, Indigenous, and other People of Color have been discussing the challenges and harms of racism with their children for generations. Our film, Dear White Parents, is a missive, a plea, for more White parents and families to teach their children to recognize and resist racism with the same candor, frequency, and urgency as BIPOC families have for generations.

“The Talk” is a series of conversations Black parents have had with their Black children about the challenges and dangers they are likely to face due to racism in our society. These talks have been happening for generations and have become an unfortunate, yet necessary, rite of passage for Black children. These talks are heart wrenching for Black parents and emotionally-damaging, psychologically challenging, and perspective-altering for Black children.
