Step Toward Racial Equity Microgrants

Let’s face it, talking about race is often difficult - but ignoring race perpetuates systems of inequity which have been built on it. Net Impact Central supports you in starting or continuing meaningful conversations about race with your chapter and your community. Use our toolkit to host a film event, or propose your own event format to spark a conversation in your community.

Option A: Propose your own event

Racial equity looks different around the world, and we want to support you in engaging your local community on the topic of racial equity. Have your own innovative and meaningful idea to engage your community on this topic? Create your own event with the support of a $75 microgrant from Net Impact Central.

Option B: Host a film event

Host a film screening and discussion about racial equity using our event-in-a-box toolkit and a $75 stipend. The toolkit has everything you need, including film suggestions on race and the criminal justice system, systemic racism, and white privilege.
