Peers for Equity and Eradicating Racism (PEER): A Peer-Educated Intervention to Address Systemic Racism in South Brunswick High School located in South Brunswick, New Jersey

Huang, Anna

The events of the past years in relation to the Black Lives Matter Movement and the COVID-19 pandemic revitalized the Civil Rights Movement and forced the US to come to terms with the systematic oppression of people of color. Using the Social Ecological Model as a framework and Intergroup Dialogue methodology as a curriculum guide, the proposed intervention seeks to instigate change at the individual and interpersonal levels to combat systemic racism by increasing intergroup contact between students at South Brunswick High School. The following intervention proposal includes an initial needs assessment, intervention materials, implementation plan, and evaluation plan guided by public health theory and practice to effectively implement and maintain the Peers for Equity and Eradicating Racism (PEER) program.
