One in a Million Award recipient: Raising Multicultural Kids
Where they are multiplying good: Easton, Masschusetts
How they are multiplying good: They are One in a Million. Raising Multicultural Kids (RMK) was founded after the co-President’s (Kelly Lamb) Kindergartener experienced multiple racial incidents at school. After reaching out to the local community for support, she found that her family was not the only one experiencing racial issues, as many kids of color began to have these experiences as early as K, 1st or 2nd grade. School-based racial incidents are a nationwide issue, but this group of parents decided to take ownership of what was happening in their community in order to bring about positive change. They not only recommend strategies and initiatives to school partners, but also actively work alongside them to bring in resources that promote inclusion, educate on the systemic nature of racism, and teach students how to be conduits for change. They have doubled their efforts over the past few weeks as tensions arise in the country and the community and are providing much needed support, education and awareness in this crucial time.
