Action for Children stands against racism (read the message from CEO Eric Karolak). We join with others in calling for an end to racism and we ask you to join us. Vote for the changes you seek. Support the communities that are most impacted. And most of all, talk about race with your neighbors, your family, and especially your children. Here are a few resources to help you and your family begin to understand and discuss these issues:
