Make a lasting impact for our children.

Interrupting Racism for Children (IRFC) educates and moves individuals to action to stop racism in its tracks, creating a future where children thrive and race does not predict their life outcomes.

IRFC is a two-day, interactive workshop where community members and
leaders have the opportunity to feel, heal and grow with one another to confront racism.
Participants leave the workshop with a greater sense of their own power and tools on
how to interrupt the key elements designed to keep racism in place.
