Talking with Teens About Race
February 8, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
In this presentation participants will gain a greater understanding about racial justice from the experience of both, a professional racial justice educator who facilitates workshops on race and an African American mother of two sons whose first hand experiences with racism fuels her passion. Teens, just like children, care about their identity and are witness to issues about race and injustice. They need environments where adults are open to difficult conversations, honest with responses to their questions and prepared to empower them as they navigate the confidence needed to care about and engage in the work needed to eliminate racism.
