Raising Antiracist Kids (10+ years old) Workshop
July 24, 2020 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Save for Later
Talking to your kids and teens about literally anything can be awkward. Luckily, teaching your kids and teens about antiracism doesn’t have to be any more awkward than other conversations.
East City Bookshop is excited to partner with Keiana Mayfield, MSW to offer Raising Antiracist Kids (10+ years old), an interactive online workshop designed to help you engage in conversations about race and racism with your family. Divided into three age ranges, Raising Antiracist Kids tailors each workshop to the unique needs and concerns present during each developmental period.
This discussion-based workshop will last approximately 90 minutes, and is intended for adults. Each class is limited to 7 to 10 families; multiple caregivers may participate in a household.
Because workshop enrollment is limited, a $10 deposit is required to reserve your spot; deposit does not include Eventbrite processing fee.* Upon completing your workshop, you will receive a $10 gift code that can be applied to future ECB online purchases or donated to the bookshop. You will receive a link to the Zoom registration page prior to the workshop.
*We understand that these are difficult times for many families, and finances should not be a barrier to participating in our online workshops.
Please contact Keiana directly about deposit waivers, as well as any questions you may have about our workshop.
