Who We Serve

My message is really that racism has no place in the hearts and minds
of our children.

Ruby Bridges

Before Racism is a comprehensive, integrated, and focused program that works with entire childcare and preschool centers. Four groups are active participants in the Before Racism program:

  1. Children ages 1–5 years attending preschools or licensed childcare centers
  2. Preschool teachers and childcare center providers who support the Before Racism program on a day-to-day basis
  3. Before Racism facilitators/coaches who train teachers and childcare professionals on the content of the program and facilitate group and individual discussions as needed
  4. Parents of young children attending preschools or childcare centers
