Race: I know I have to talk to my child about this, but where do I start? What do I do? What do I say? How much is too much?

The deadly effects of institutional and interpersonal racism have been brought to the forefront of our national discourse. The home / school wall has been lifted and the need for families to engage in conversations around race, racism, power, privilege and bias, is critical. What we hear all the time is: I know I have to talk to my child about this, but where do I start? What do I do? What do I say? How much is too much? In the workshop, Talking about Race and Racism with Your Child, our experienced facilitators will share practical ways to support families in engaging in meaningful conversations with their children.

This workshop will be a prerequisite for a second series of workshops covering specific topics ranging from: Talking about Hope in Really Hard Times to Reading Books with My Kids Using a Critical Literacy Framework to Speaking Up in the Moment with My Kids. The final list and registration for the second series is forthcoming.

Facilitators: Michelle Harris, Susan Park, Sophie Rutstein

This workshop is offered on the following days and times:

  • June 19 from 2pm-3pm EST
  • June 30 from 5pm-6pm EST
  • July 11 from 1pm-2pm EST
