Disparity Trap: The Socially Conscious Board Game provides an easy way to have the hard conversations around race & privilege in America and how they impact society in systemically dominant (SD) and systemically non-dominant (SND) ways. The game play is like many of its kind, where your individual goal is to accrue as much wealth as possible. But where it differs is that you can have a team goal as well where you work with  your fellow players to dismantle the Disparity Traps seeking to keep everyone in poverty. Within this game you also step into someone else’s shoes; to experience the disparities within an identity different from your own. Throughout the game, the dice roll correlates your identity in the game to real life statistics.

So like life, the dice are in your hands, but the odds are not.

African American Policy Forum short film: The Unequal Opportunity Race

Racism feeds on denial. Lament moves us to tell the truth. And the truth can set us free.
In Lamenting Racism, leading pastors and theologians invite us into the transformative and motivating practice of biblical lament as a powerful way to confront racism. This six-session study invites church groups to engage in the practice of biblical lament as a powerful tool in the church’s struggle against racism.

The AntiRacist Table's 30 Day Challenge includes prompts to bring "mindful anti-racist practice into daily life".

Expanding the Table for Racial Equity

Two six-video sessions with diverse leaders covering a range of topics. Appropriate for tweens, teens and adults.

World Trust's Cracking the Codes supports institutions and communities to deepen and shift the framing of racial disparities from our shallow, even harmful focus on individuals, to institutional and structural inequities.

The conversation parents of color have with their children about interactions with police.

How to deconstruct racism, one headline at a time: Baratunde Thurston: super good talk on racism, includes "interactive" activity accessible to tweens through adults; uses humor yet remains poignant.
