How do we raise our children to treat others fairly when they see racial injustice? What are the pros and cons of talking openly about race and racial injustice with our children? What is the price of silence? Researchers have found that to be effective, conversations about race must be explicit, and your messages must be put in unmistakable terms that children understand.
In conjunction with our Reading to End Racism program, we’re offering this free learning session for parents and caregivers. We’ll explore the following areas that provide a foundation to start talking with your children about race:
- Examine your own beliefs and prejudices
- Acknowledge privilege
- Recognize stereotypes
- Commit to talking with children about racial prejudice
- Look for teachable moment in everyday life
The event is free, but spaces are limited, and registration is required. Please register by Monday, October 26. To register, visit our registration page.
