Mosaic Lifespan Anti-Racism Curriculum Introduction

Anti-Racism Resources for All Ages and Identities

This long term project, in response to the Commission on Institutional Change’s report, Widening the Circle of Concern, in which it is recommended that an “OWL–like" (lifespan) curriculum on antiracism is developed, will construct multimedia “playlists" for various age groups (K-adult).

Program Goals

  1. To collaboratively develop a series of modular playlist-formatted lessons for each age group.
  2. To create lessons that will be relevant to the aims of faith development for each age group, as well as to our growing understanding of best practices and justice centered parlance that arise out of BIPOC movements to decolonize and decenter whiteness.
  3. To create lessons with virtual, in-person, and hybrid learning environments in mind.
  4. To maintain a cohesion with the various other projects within the Mosaic brand.

How to Access

The entire curriculum will become available once you have completed the facilitator training. Free for Mosaic facilitators with code: mosaic.
