Why we do what we do

The DEAR Project believes that the path to an antiracist society requires intervention at the individual (intra- and inter-personal attitudes, beliefs, and actions), cultural (implicit and explicit organizational values), and structural (organizational policies and practices) level.

Therefore, our services are designed to aid organizational capacity-building for effective antiracism advocacy by starting with training of individual change agents.

We believe that for cultural and systemic change to happen within an organization, antiracist individual-level interventions must first be implemented to support the individuals nested within the organization in acquiring the skills to talk about racism and engage in consistent antiracist actions.
