Talking to Children about Race and Social Justice

  • Thursday, July 9, 2020 • 12:30 pm
  • Zoom

The dual crises of the coronavirus pandemic and police violence have brought to light deep racial disparities in the U.S., igniting discussions about race, racism, and racial equity in households worldwide. Families find themselves grappling with difficult conversations and adults are looking for guidance on how to engage children, especially as they challenge their own biases, prejudices and behaviors that, intentional or not, sustain racism. Many recognize that this moment presents a critical opportunity for families to consider their responsibility and commitment to advancing racial equity, and are hoping to find support in raising social-justice minded children.

During this panel discussion, parents, educators, entrepreneurs and advocates join together to share their experiences and insights, from talking with children about race to raising children with a racial equity lens. Registration is open, sign up here.
