BENEFITING: Proteus Fund Inc

EmbraceRace is a multiracial community of parents, teachers, and other caring adults supporting each other to nurture resilient kids of color, racially literate kids of all stripes, and adults and kids who are effective advocates for racial justice in their communities. 

We're asking you to help fund a monthly, yearlong online workshop series that will support caregivers to become thoughtful, informed guides and models on race for the kids in our lives. Our expert guests will answer questions and share insights and resources on the issues you care most about.

The 50k we hope to raise will pay for audio production, the online platform, speaker stipends, transcription services and dissemination resources. The Proteus Fund is our fiscal sponsor; all money raised will come to EmbraceRace.

The Movement for Black Lives, the ongoing backlash against Muslim Americans, the movement for mass de-carceration, talk of immigrant deportation forces - these are racially turbulent times.

The promising news is that in the midst of the turmoil more and more of us are calling for ways to do the work of racial healing and racial justice in our homes, schools, and communities. 

Let's make this hard work easier to do, together.

Please check out our video, give what you can, and share our campaign with your friends!  You can also check us out here: Medium|Newsletter|Facebook

Thank you!

Andrew & Melissa
