Breaking Down Structural and Systemic Racism for Our Children
April 12 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm PDTFree
Appreciating diversity – of skins colors, hair textures, foods, and music. Embracing friendships across racial lines. Understanding that every racial and ethnic group includes people who believe different things and behave in different ways, that there is as much diversity within racial groups as across them.
Join us for a conversation about structural and systemic racism. What do we mean by those terms? Why do they matter? How do we break them down for, make them accessible to, even elementary school-aged children? What can we support our children to do about them? As always, bring your questions, experiences, and insights!
