Breaking
the System

Explore this interactive anti-racism Activity Kit and share with others to create a more equitable future for everyone.

Life presents a unique journey for everyone, with many twists and turns along the way. No two paths are the same. The people, places, and societal systems around us can shape who we are and the opportunities we are given.

Together, through learning, taking action and sharing our knowledge with others, we can break down barriers created by societal systems and work toward a more equitable world for everyone.

This Activity Kit is designed to be a first step in your learning journey about racial equity. While much of the content in this Activity Kit is North American focused, we address diverse geographical regions and expect this content to continuously evolve to encompass broader inclusion goals. As you explore the resources in this Activity Kit, you will unlock digital stickers that you can share with others to invite them to start their own racial equity learning journey as you learn how six of the many systems in society can either support or oppress people and communities. Explore the interactive System Cards below to learn how together we can work toward a more inclusive and equitable future for everyone.
