Calling All Colors (CAC), a program for middle and high school students, provides inviting, safe spaces for students to talk about biases, particularly related to race and ethnicity. CAC gives students tools for creating and increasing positive impacts within their schools.

This year-long program that fosters inclusive school communities features a fall kick-off conference and a spring wrap-up conference. Calling All Colors encourages monthly meetings within each school as well as frequent communication between LEDA and other participating schools.
