Prejudice & Discrimination

Protecting Ourselves and Others

Each day in schools, workplaces, neighborhoods, homes, and communities – online and off – countless people are harmed by discrimination based in prejudice.

Common types of prejudice-based discrimination are about race, ethnicity, culture, religion, sexuality, gender, ability, body size, and age.

Even though anyone may experience an act of discrimination, some people experience it much more because they are part of a certain group – or are seen as being part of a certain group.

Discrimination can range from microaggressions to unfair treatment in schools to workplace harassment to physical attacks.

All types are harmful, and the harmful effects accumulate when people experience discrimination over and over. This repeated exposure takes a profound, growing toll that wears on the emotional, mental, physical, educational, social, and financial well-being of individuals, families, and communities.

Even though an individual person does not have the power to change big social problems like racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, or ableism on their own, we each DO have the power to take action that can help prevent or reduce harm for ourselves, our loved ones, and others – including strangers in our communities.

No matter how you identify personally, your power makes a difference. Use these resources to build skills for protecting emotional and physical safety, intervening, and advocating in order to help end prejudice, discrimination, and the harm it causes.

Please contact us with any questions or to take or plan a workshop to protect adults, teens, or children in your community.
