About the event
About our Course:
Part 1 of this seminar was awesome – we needed more time! Let’s continue our incredible conversation about how to have conversations with children about race. For us to begin this important work with children we must understand our starting points of reference. We will discuss various terminologies and how to partner with the children in your life for liberation and truly create the future they deserve. Join us as parents, family members, and guardians of children as we examine how to talk to kids about race, and even raise anti-racist children. The research says children do see race, but far too many of us struggle to talk to our kids about race believing that we are protecting them. In this 90 minute seminar you will talk about beliefs and get some resources and strategies for how to have conversations with the children in your life. There is no prerequisite.
