Center for Racial Justice in Education offers trainings, consultation and in-depth partnerships to educators, schools, and educational organizations who want to advance racial justice. Because children don’t only learn in one place, Center for Racial Justice in Education works with educators of all kinds—from classroom teachers and principals to teaching artists and parents.

Center for Racial Justice in Education trainings provide educators with a framework to understand the context, history, and manifestations of racism, as well as tools to build an anti-racist practice. We work with educators to identify, examine, and disrupt systems that perpetuate racism—often in their very own institutions


Talking about Race Training: TAR (Flagship training)

Center for Racial Justice in Education’s flagship training, Talking About Race, equips educators with skills, tools, and analysis to: 1) deepen their knowledge about the history of race and racism in the US; 2) strengthen their understanding of how racial oppression, privilege, and identity affect their lives, their teaching, and their student’s lives; and 3) build an anti-racism educational practice. 


Talking About Race: Raising Children for Racial Justice 

This version of Talking about Race  is customized for parents, guardians, and caregivers to explore strategies for addressing race and racism with their children. Participants learn how children see race, gain skills for approaching age-appropriate conversations with a racial equity lens, and practice strategies to promote positive racial identity development in children.



Center for Racial Justice in Education offers follow up training for educators and institutions who have participated in Talking about Race to deepen their learning and practice, through exploring topics such as unconscious bias, racial identity development, and creating racially equitable institutions.   Please email [email protected] for more information
