Point Made Learning offers hands on learning experiences for schools and organizations that want to have real conversations surrounding the topics of race, diversity, equity and inclusion. We offer workshops, film screenings and speaking engagements. Our unique American Dream Game remodels the conventional board game transforming it into a powerful lesson on bias, stereotypes, discrimination, and systemic inequity. We tell true stories and teach powerful lessons about issues that matter.

“The hierarchy of caste is not about feelings or morality, it is about power — which groups have it and which do not.” Isabel Wilkerson "Before its release, the Chicago Tribune declared that Caste “should be at the top of every American’s reading list." Dwight Garner, the chief critic of The New York Times, called Caste “an instant American classic and almost certainly the keynote nonfiction book of the American century thus far.” - www.isabelwilkerson.com

For one school year, a diverse group of remarkable teens and their families plunges into a yearlong journey to get at the heart of racism. We see how these difficult conversations begin to affect their relationships and ultimately challenge them to look deep within themselves through some tense and painful moments. By the end of their time together, we'll see these courageous young people develop stronger bonds, a greater resolve, and a more extensive definition of racism than any of us ever imagined.

"More than 2.3 million women have dropped out of the labor force since February 2020, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. A Census Bureau and Federal Reserve analysis found that 1 in 3 women not working in July cited childcare issues as the reason, and Pew found that mothers of children 12 and under were three times more likely than fathers to have lost work between February and August. Latina and Black women have been hit hardest, and women’s labor-force participation reached a 33-year low in January. Economists have dubbed this recession a “she­cession.” -ELIANA DOCKTERMAN, Time Magazine

"I want to always be a "soldier of the people," to make a substantial difference in the width of the door of opportunity for people of color.
