  • Develop & evaluate theories and interventions that recast racial rejection/health in the lives of youth and families. 

  • Critique behavioral/educational science and service on inattention to youth/family racial risk/protective factors.  

  • Produce intervention-focused programs, films, and training that promote racial health protective factors & narratives. 

  • Provide Down-to-Earth (DTE) and In-the-Moment (ITM) racial health knowledge, skills for children, parents, teachers, and community leaders.
