The Research Alliance will evaluate anti-racism training for educators offered by the nonprofit organization, Border Crossers. The study is being supported by a grant to Border Crossers from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.

Border Crossers aims to disrupt racism at the school and community level by empowering educators through professional development, training, and coaching. The program is designed to help educators deconstruct racism in the classroom and includes a focus on the social construct of race, exploring the ways in which racism manifests in education, and practicing strategies that disrupt racism through short- and long-term actions. 

The Research Alliance study will examine outcomes of participating in Border Crossers’ training, including the extent to which the organization’s tools do in fact disrupt racism at the school and classroom level. Dr. Adriana Villavicencio will serve as the principal investigator of the evaluation.
