March 2024Vol. 25, No. 2Color-Brave Caregiver Framework

Embrace Race, a community of parents, professionals, and other caring adults working together to address the racial challenges faced by today's youth, recently introduced its Color-Brave Caregiver Framework, a tool that provides caregivers with guidance essential to raising children who are thoughtful, informed, and brave about race.

The framework is built upon four goals that can help caregivers raise children who are:

  • Resilient and joyful in their own skin
  • Inclusive and empathetic toward others
  • Critical thinkers about race and inequity
  • Racial justice advocates

Each goal includes three key practices in which caregivers and children can collaboratively engage, and each practice has a dedicated action guide (12 total) with tips, information, and links to supplemental resources intended to promote thoughtful and brave conversations.

A color-brave caregiver works as a committed guide, compassionate self-examiner, brave learner, and antiracist advocate who is committed to racial equity. To learn more about the Color-Brave Caregiver Framework, visit the EmbraceRace website.
