Calling All Colors fosters inclusive school communities through a year-long program that features two conferences, creates a safe place to talk about race, and provides tools for increasing positive racial impacts for middle and high school students.
At the beginning of the school year, participating
schools select a core group of students to attend the opening
conference, held at an area college/university. This conference includes a keynote speaker, facilitated dialogues, and school-group planning sessions. Students have the opportunity to meet students from
other schools, increase awareness of different viewpoints, learn about
stereotyping and its effects, discuss feelings about race, and be exposed to
the college campus.
