WISDOM AGAINST RACISM CIC
Empowering Young People to Navigate, Challenge & Disarm Racism
"It is not possible to immediately end racism, but we can educate ourselves and the next generation to navigate, challenge and disarm it. We have for too long accepted a young person having minimal understanding and awareness of a subject that can fundamentally impact their personality, confidence and potential. We have an obligation to ensure prejudice, discrimination and racism do not pollute the next generation as it has the previous. Our mission is to provide mentors, educators and teachers with the resources they need to empower young people, regardless of the pigment of their skin, to live their best life."
