TALKING TO KIDS ABOUT
RACISM AND EQUITY

There are more than 2.5 million children in Georgia.

Black, Hispanic, Asian, Biracial children make up 56% of our child population.

What is Racism?

A belief that race is a fundamental determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race; the systemic oppression of a racial group to the social, economic, and political advantage of another.

What is Equity?

The guarantee of optimal treatment, access, opportunity, and advancement while at the same time striving to identify and eliminate barriers that have prevented the full participation of some groups. The principle of equity acknowledges that there are historically underserved and underrepresented populations, and that fairness regarding these unbalanced conditions is needed to assist equality in the provision of effective opportunities to all groups.
