RACIAL EQUITY LEARNING MODULE:
For purchasing our curriculum please fill out the form below. Our sales department team will reach out with more information.
This collection of curriculum explores colonialism and the impact it has had on current thought patterns and interpersonal communication. Understanding history, culture and power allows for a deeper understanding of on-going patterns of inequity. Exploring historical colonialist justification and the current thought patterns that have developed based on those rationals supports the understanding of how power works, who has it, and how to interrupt those patterns. The more intentional that interruption becomes the more clearly the desire for on-going cross-racial organizing is articulated, allowing participants to work more authentically and in collaboration to dismantle structures and policies that maintain inequitable outcomes.
ABOUT THESE LEARNING MODULES
Racial Equity Learning
Teaching literacy in the messages shaped by history, power, economics, and culture, Racial Equity Learning is a new way to deepen the conversation around race and equity. Using integral learning, World Trust Educational Services, in collaboration with leaders in the social justice movement, provides best practices to generate transformational learning and arts integration to “connect people more deeply to the world and open them to new ways of seeing (Rand Corporation, 2005).” Through a focus on whole body learning, people learn to feel and experience their reactions, developing the emotional intelligence needed to deconstruct and integrate the structures that hold structural racism in place.
A resource for educators, trainers & leaders, it supports individuals in identifying those systems and structures, taking personal initiative to make changes by naming and re-framing, and developing institutional outcomes for addressing and changing the system.
Who Should Use These Materials
Racial Equity Learning Modules are ideal for those who are interested in engaging others in issues of diversity & inclusion, and particularly in exploring and understanding structural racism. These groups might include adult learners in a variety of sectors:

Government – local, state and federal employees
Healthcare providers and administrators
Faith-based leaders and their communities
K – 12 school communities – parents, teachers, staff and high school students
Nonprofit organizations including community-based service and cultural workers.
"Racial Equity Learning should be required learning in K-12 and college curriculum."
