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 Indy-area 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.

Upcoming Workshops

Join us for a two-day workshop to make a lasting impact for our children. Workshops will resume mid-July and will be held at The Jewel Center.

Racism in Indianapolis — Resources

Racism is alive and well throughout our entire country and, despite our best efforts, we must recognize that it also exists right here in Indianapolis. As leaders for children and for anti-racist organizations, we have a job to do to dismantle systemic racism, especially for our children’s sake – but we cannot do it alone. We have curated the resources below to help individuals learn and take action.
