The Equity Research Action Coalition’s mission is to conduct research that informs practices and policies aimed at protecting, promoting, and preserving the health, economic security, and cultural excellence of Black and other minoritized children and their families. One of the primary ways we can inform practices and policies is by sharing the knowledge we gain through a variety of publications. These publications are the result of successful collaborations with academic partners and foundation sponsors. Through these vital relationships, we will ensure that practices and policies push forward, facilitating change through research that will have a positive impact on Black and other minoritized children and their families.

Black children experience disparities and anti-Black racism before they are born and throughout their lives, including in early education environments. Recent research documents these disparities. However, there are few venues to focus on strength-based, anti-Black racism solutions to these systemic inequities in early childhood. Ms. Bunche Smith and Dr. Iruka will explain how to identify and begin to dismantle anti-Black racism in early childhood, in the context of research, practice.

Carolina Seminar Series

COVID-19 has disproportionately impacted Black and African-American (AA) Communities. In Orange County, 11.8% of the population is Black or AA, yet 37% of confirmed COVID-19 cases were Black or AA. This series will bring together scientists, child advocates, educators, community leaders, and policymakers to address this disparity, which impacts educational, social-emotional, and neurological development.
