OUR VISION

Before Racism helps children ages 1-5 embrace differences and prevents the development of racial bias so they can thrive in an increasingly diverse world.

Our young children today will soon be tomorrow’s leaders.

They will work and live alongside an increasingly rich diversity of people. Before Racism integrates early childhood education best practices and science to prevent the development of racial bias in children ages 1-5. This comprehensive program helps very young children learn to appreciate and embrace differences and to live and play effectively among an increasingly diverse population so that they can have greater academic, social, and career success.
