Conversations that Create Change: Talking to Kids about Injustice
Research indicates that children are aware of racial categories from a very young age and that explicit conversations about racism can improve racial attitudes. Further, teaching children about the history of marginalized groups is among the most effective methods to reduce bias. This talk will explore how and where children receive information about racial injustice, focusing on four main areas: children’s racial awareness as they develop, parent/child conversations about race within the home, race-focused curricula at school, and real-world interventions aimed at reducing bias.
Begins March 1st, 2021. Sessions scheduled at various times and days over three weeks for flexibility. Some evenings, some lunchtime, some weekends.
Access to twelve live sessions with practitioners who value bringing gospel truth to racial conflict. Several will feature live Q&A!
Schedules will be posted shortly! Don't worry, if you can't make the live sessions. Your registration grants access to recordings* (for a limited time).
