We can raise an anti-racist generation. Take the pledge today. 

PLEDGE: I pledge to teach my children to recognize and resist racism by talking to them about the topic early and often.

Research: 

  • Start early. Children can begin to show signs of racial bias as early as 3-years-old. By the age of 5, they can cause race-based harm but they can also be advocates of fairness, or equity. (APA, Pediatrics Nationwide, GOOP)
  • Kids know. 86% of children believe that people of different races are not treated fairly in this country. 42% have personally experienced some type of discrimination, most prominently racial discrimination (27%). (Sesame Workshop)  
  • Inter-generational impact. 65% of White adults say their parents rarely or never spoke to them about racism when they were children. Those whose parents did speak to them about racism when they were children were more likely to have similar discussions with their own children. (The Conversation)

Why is the film called Dear White Parents?  
Out of necessity, Black, Indigenous, and other People of Color (BIPOC) have been discussing the challenges and harms of racism with their children for generations. The Dear White Parents film is a missive, a plea, for more White parents and families to join the effort to teach children to recognize and resist racism with the same candor, frequency, and urgency as BIPOC families have for generations.
