Mission: Equity Kids explore ways of rejecting racism to make racial injustice a thing of the past.

Our organization accomplishes this by creating racially and culturally diverse spaces where kids experience and learn to appreciate differences, discuss historical and current racial inequities, and explore ways to take a stand against racism.

Equity Kids is working to reach its mission through in-person classes in Austin. In these classes, children learn to appreciate different cultures and ethnicities through fun interactions such as playing games, listening to music, and reading stories. Equity Kids’ programming is built upon the anti-bias framework established by the Southern Poverty Law Center, which identifies four focus areas: Identity, Diversity, Justice, and Action.
