The design was created with the goal of being able to communicate open and constructive conversations about race with young children, providing controlled, age-appropriate educational resources and tools to help children understand and address racial bias in their day to day lives. By promoting awareness and understanding at a young age the app aims to help create a more equitable and inclusive society. In addition to providing educational resources and games, the app would place children in scenarios involving racial injustice to encourage allied behavior. Parents that create the account, would receive a journal for their child, game summaries, and discussion tips to inspire their Little Allies.
