POSTPONED: The ABCs of Racism: Fostering Conversations and Action about Race and Justice with Kids

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED. 

From cradle to grave, by every metric of well-being we can measure -- education, employment, health, housing -- research tells us that deep racial disparities persist in our society. Research also tells us that children begin to notice and assign meaning to skin color by the age of 2. This makes racial literacy a critical part of preparing our children to lead lives as engaged, equity-minded problem-solvers in the world.

Geared for White or multiracial audiences, this workshop explores fundamental concepts of systemic racism, the barriers that block us from engaging with kids around race and racism, the social science of race awareness in children, and strategies to start and sustain antiracist and action in school and at home. Registration requested.

Funding provided by the TJX Corporation.
