Our Philosophy

As a division of Moms Against Racism USA, Future First Education is committed to supporting educators and guiding advocates along their DEI and antiracism journeys. We aim to close the divide through equitable teaching practices. Inspired by National Youth Poet Laureate Amanda Gorman, we offer professional development to help educators create a more equitable future for children. Join us in putting the Future First.

“If we merge mercy with might,

and might with right,

then love becomes our legacy,

and change our children's birthright.”

"This was a wonderful, thought provoking workshop. I am so thankful to have been able to receive the benefit of your knowledge and expertise."
