Resources on Racism and Racial Identity

Resources on Racism and Racial Identity

The Center for Parent and Teen Communication is committed to ending structural inequalities and eradicating racism so that all young people can become their best selves. Our teens will build our future, and if they have an understanding of structural inequalities and racism, they will work to promote justice and more equal opportunities from the ground up. They will create the type of world that will be better for us all.

Our culturally responsive parenting content builds on cultural strengths and addresses the unique stressors families of color face when raising teens today. We partner with scholars with expertise in BIPOC communities to create resources that help parents engage in important conversations about racism and racial identity.
