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.

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.
