این واحد درسی به منظور بالا بردن ظرفیت شرکت‌کنندگان برای فهم عدالت نژادی و وحدت، شناسایی نقش بهائیان ایرانی آمریکایی، و مشارکت در تأسیس مودّت و دوستیِ بین نژادها از طریق فعالیت‌های جامعه سازی، اقدام اجتماعی، و پیشبرد گفتمان‌های اجتماعی طرّاحی شده است. این واحد درسی عدالت نژادی و وحدت در آمریکا را از دیدگاه بهائی مورد بررسی قرار می‌دهد. در نهایت، شرکت‌کنندگان ظرفیت بکار بستن این دانش را در زندگی شخصی و جمعی فرا خواهند گرفت. در این واحد درسی ایده‌های متنوعی ارائه شده است ولی ما لزوماً دیدگاهِ شخصی نویسندگان یا مراجع خاصی را را تأئید یا حمایت نمی‌کنیم.

این واحد درسی بر سه زمینه قابلیت تمرکز دارد:

۱) تعریف مسئله/موضوع (دانش)

۲) درک رویکرد بهائی در مورد ایجاد عدالت و وحدت نژادی (بینش روحانی)

۳) کسب مهارت برای تأسیس مودّت نژادی، جامعه‌سازی و مشارکت در گفتمان (مهارت برای خدمت)
