racial and ethnic justice
Racial and Ethnic Justice program brings together the wide diversity of people, resources, and perspectives to push back on the bigotry and racism that is all too pervasive in this community to ensure that every person has equal access to opportunity.
The Color Outside the Lines initiative engages the Lehigh Valley in a conversation about race and ethnicity that eliminates barriers to fairness and opportunity, strengthens our community, and leaves no one behind.

We facilitate community-based racial conversations that provide diverse groups the opportunity to voice their opinions, explore and express their feelings towards the culture of the Lehigh Valley, receive education, and ultimately feel empowered to make a difference.
We provide implicit bias trainings tailored specifically to the professional context of the requesting entity. Trainings are currently being conducted in local school districts with administration, staff, and faculty and at local businesses. These trainings are not a “once and done” solution. We provide multiple trainings with subsequent reinforcement guides and discussions to reaffirm your commitment to racial equity and ensure measurable change is enacted.
