We charge a fee for many of our publicly hosted programs. No individual is turned away from any of our our programs due to a lack of funds. People under 25 are not expected to contribute financially. We ask those who are able to pay full price or more for our programs to do. This helps keep our programs financially accessible to all, regardless of income. Not sure if you should pay less, more, or nothing? View our Sliding Scale document to find an amount that feels appropriate to you.

Talking With Kids About Racism

January 15 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm EST

Fees Vary
Wednesdays January 15, 22, and 29
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 program is for all who are concerned about the impact of racism and/or white privilege on our children. Learn tools to discuss these issues with children in a meaningful and age-appropriate way through resources, discussion, and role playing. Co-Sponsored by The Schoolhouse.


Free for people until 25. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. We ask for $75 from the general public and $50 from members to support this work. If you are not sure what to pay, please look at our Sliding Scale Fee document, to find out how to best assess the appropriate amount for you to contribute.
Schoolhouse Learning Center has generously offered to provide childcare for this program! Please indicate on the registration form if you need it.
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. Advance registration required. Register below.
