Most importantly, This film asks America to talk about the causes and consequences of systemic inequity. In addition, Designed for dialogue, the film works to disentangle internal beliefs, attitudes and pre-judgments within. After that, it builds skills to address the structural drivers of social and economic inequities.

However, Cracking the Codes supports institutions and communities to deepen and shift the framing of racial disparities. The current conversation is not only shallow, but actually harmful. Similarly, we continue to primarily focus on individuals, when institutional and structural inequities are the bigger problem.

Most importantly, the film contains three sections that correspond to World Trust’s framing of the self-perpetuating system of racial inequity:

1st Section: Social Determinants: History, Identity & Culture
2nd Section: Internal Components: Bias, Privilege, Internalized Racism
3rd Section: External Relationships: Interpersonal, Institutional, Structural

In addition, the film features moving stories from twenty-four racial justice leaders including Amer Ahmed, Michael Benitez, Barbie-Danielle DeCarlo, Joy DeGruy, Harley Eagle, Ericka Huggins, Yuko Kodama, Peggy McIntosh, Rinku Sen, Tillman Smith and Tim Wise.
