Welcome to Racial Equity Learning for Action, a growing collection of learning modules created by World Trust in collaboration with other leading racial justice organizations. The project is inspired by the World Trust film project “Cracking the Codes: The System of Racial Inequity“ and seeks to bridge the gap between inspiration and democratic action that supports racial equity. Whether you are an educator or trainer, we hope these resources will help you support others to drop preconceptions of what is possible, and to dream of and reach for a world in which all are respected, valued and able to thrive. Learn more about the program’s learning principles and epistemology.
These modules are designed to facilitate deep learning and change. Some are more appropriate for those new to ideas around fairness and equity, others delve much deeper and challenge long held beliefs and ideas. We highly recommend looking through all the modules and choosing those appropriate for your audience/students/participants. The Understanding the System of Racial Inequity module is designed to provide a starting point.
The Racial Equity Learning for Action project is funded with support from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.

“Art is a tool that an ally could use to unearth the myth of meritocracy, find the cracks and fissures in the institutional foundation and to begin to force a paradigm shift toward justice. We must empower our students, through arts integration, education, and activism, to be allies to the oppressed and correct the wrongs of an unjust system.”
