The Anti-Racism Anti-Oppression Portal is rebranding and refreshing to become more efficient and aligned to its intended purpose, according to the Black Education Act.
Effective Sept. 1, the portal will move to online submissions only via this link.
That means the phone number will no longer be in use. Submissions no longer will be accepted through the ARAO email address either. Please update your websites to reflect the submission portal and remove the ARAO phone number and email address. As part of the rebranding and refreshing, we are replacing the word “hotline” with “portal.”

The Anti-Racism/Anti Oppression (ARAO) Hotline is a resource created by the Black Education Act (House Bill 43) that is available for students, families, staff, community members, or any stakeholder to report school-based incidents of racism, injustice, or discrimination against anyone.
The hotline provides a variety of ways to file an incident report and operates under IPRA and FERPA guidelines.
There is no expectation for anonymity when reporting to the ARAO Hotline. The Hotline utilizes the information reported to encourage communication, and positive engagement of all parties during the follow-up process.
