Talking to Children about Race
This workshop--popular among parents, teachers, and caregivers--is back in person! Kids notice race from an early age but many parents are afraid to discuss race openly with their children. How can we talk about race productively? How do these talks differ for families of different races, for adoptive families, for mixed-race families? These workshops strive to help the adults gain an understanding of the stages of racial knowledge, how to talk with children about race, and more. This year's workshop is focused on pre-school and early elementary school-aged children.
