The change we wish to see:
College-bound high school students have the option of taking a college-level class for college credit that provides them knowledge about systemic racism and skills for creating anti-racist environments on elite college campuses.
When: Sometime during the third decade of the 21st Century.
High school students preparing to apply to elite colleges and universities have the option of taking a class where they:
Gain an awareness that systemic racism impacts some of their future classmates and their families;
Acknowledge skills people of color use to successfully navigate systemic racism in this country;
Develop skills to help create an anti-racist environment on elite college campuses;
Develop skills to help create an anti-racist environment in the workplace and within organizations and institutions;
Analyze policies that might help root out systemic racism.
