Talking With Kids About Racism

September 17, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

$60 – $75
Tuesdays, September 17, 24, and October 1
This three-part program is designed for all who are concerned about the impact of racism and/or white privilege on our children. Talking about race and racism can be difficult — especially with children. But that does not mean we shouldn’t have these conversations. This three part discussion group addresses the impact of racism on our children. It is designed to help white people discuss these issues with children in a meaningful and age-appropriate way. It includes resources, discussion, and role playing. This program is held in collaboration with St Mikes Civil Rights Alliance.

 

Free for people until 25. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. We ask for $75 from the general public and $60 from members to support this work.

 

Participants are expected to attend all three sessions unless granted permission in advance from the facilitators. If the workshop fills, priority will be given to those who can attend all sessions.

 

Registration is required. Register here or below.
