Dismantling Racism

Talking to your Children about Racism

Dealing with racism is not just for adults.  Children and parents can work together to remove racism, hatred, and division.  Respecting the dignity of every human being and seeing all as God’s beloved children needs to be discussed throughout the different stages of a child’s life and parents need resources to enable them to listen and talk about the tough issues.  During this workshop, we will provide parents with resources (books and discussion questions/activities) to help them navigate these difficult but necessary conversations about race and racism with their children.
