About the Event
Raising Anti-Racist Kids
This workshop will speak to what parents and caregivers, especially those who are white, need to know in order to raise anti-racist kids. We will focus on what this looks like in a community with a racial demographic that is about 95% white. It will provide parents and caregivers with knowledge and action steps of how to talk about issues of race and racism with their children, how to teach and model anti-racism practices, and how to navigate common challenges that come up with kids and families, in school, and in the community.
In this workshop you will learn:
- How to talk to kids about race and racism and help them build anti-racism skills
- How to integrate anti-racism education, practices, and actions into family life
- How parents can practice and model anti-racism practices
- How to navigate personal, family, and community challenges that arise
