The focus of the curriculum is on improving relationships with and resources for youth of color and Native youth.

Module 13: Allies & Antiracism of this curriculum defines the term “ally”, describe the characteristics of allyship, distinguishes between non-racist and anti-racist, and describes ways to engage in anti-racist work. Allies can work to actually actively fight racism when they hear it, see it, and they can acknowledge it.
