Silence is Compliance: Kids Inspire Difference Stands with #BLM - Take Action Today

Updated: Jun 18



As our country reckons with racial injustice, we all must consider our role and our failures and commit to meaningful action. We must always stand for what is right and take action when the situation demands it. THERE IS NO PLACE FOR RACISM. Kids Inspire Difference stands with all members of the black community because we believe black lives matter. This is not a political issue. It is a human rights issue.


Our mission is to empower youth to use their privilege to help others. Now more than ever it is important to use your platform fo educate and uplift others. Join the movement. Below are links to fundraisers, petitions, articles, and more for youth to get involved.

It is also important for adults and educators to have conversations with children about racism, diversity, tolerance, and inclusivity. Below are links for educators to teach children about antiracism in hopes of empowering the next generation to be real leaders and advocate for change.
