• Explore their own racial literacy
• Examine race as a mediating factor for social justice
• Recognize how critical race perspectives can influence racial justice
• Distinguish the complexities of race, culture and diversity
• Work in teams to understand action research processes toward building an antiracist working and
   living environment
