Workshops, events, and awareness groups where our community young people, and community leaders facilitate projects on the aspects of race, bias, and inequity.
We recognize the need to look inside our own organization to ensure that we intentionally promote racial equity, along with all forms of racism, discrimination, and oppression.
We know that we have been complicit in upholding the status quo. We cannot continue to pursue our work in a race-neutral way. Therefore, we are interrupting our past behavior and taking intentional and significant steps to transform TeachThemYoungER to live our values. As we work toward creating a more equitable country where our communities can thrive regardless of their race, ethnicity, socioeconomic background, sexual orientation, or ability. TeachThemYoungER must live the values for which we advocate.
We are motivated to bring awareness to legal and moral methods of creating a movement of “NEXT LEVEL” change to our communities:
In service to our commitment to equity, TeachThemYoungER recognizes that learning about racism and equity is an ongoing process. We want to create a discussion/roundtable that begins to have these discussions at a young person’s level. Alvin "AC" Codner will lead this effort and bring his style and flair to topics that stimulate discussions within our village that can help unite our communities.
