How to Talk With Kids about Racism (Session 1)
August 8, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
More from the facilitators:
I am a kid who regularly talks with adults about race and racism. I offer a unique perspective to this discussion group because of my age (I am a senior in high school) and my experiences as a youth of color living in Vermont. I know how important and helpful it was for me that my parents talked to me about racism and I want to help other parents initiate these difficult conversations. Facilitating is a great way for me to ensure that adults in my community are engaging in anti-racist parenting. Additionally, I have been leading discussions on race with middle school students for about a year and a half now. This work too has inspired me to share what I have learned.
-Isaiah Hines, co-facilitator
As a mother of a toddler and an educator in the public school system I am always looking to connect with others around how are we making anti-racist parenting and teaching part of our daily lives. We have the wondrous and abundant responsibility of raising children and they deserve to learn another way, a way that centers justice. As a white parent it is my responsibility to act in solidarity to end white supremacy and build this consciousness in our Vermont communities. But this work is too big for any one of us alone so I am grateful for the opportunity to facilitate and come together for this workshop series on how to talk with kids about racism. I am so honored to be co-facilitating with the brilliant and inspiring Isaiah Hines!
