Talking to Children About Racism Part 2: Exploring White Privilege a Q&A Session

If you can relate to any of the following sentiments, this webinar is for you. • ‘My kids have very few opportunities to interact with people that don’t look like them. I'm ashamed to admit this truth. How do I teach them tangible ways to be open, loving, and accepting of everyone when they really only see people who look like them?’ • ‘How do I, a white person, talk to my multi-racial children about the realities of the racial injustices they will face?’ • ‘Why do I need to talk my kids about this at all?’
