White Parents, Let's Talk: Doing Our Part to End Racism

Critical Topics in Parenting

Join us Monday, August 24, at 8 pm ET for the first webinar in this free series, Critical Topics in Parenting, designed to address the most pressing issues facing families and children today. All parents are welcome.

White parents have a tremendous responsibility to address racism. We begin by identifying and recognizing the explanations for racial inequality we learned from our parents, communities, and schools, and exploring ways to challenge those narratives to advance our own understanding.

In this webinar facilitated by Karen Fleshman, author and founder of Racy Conversations, parents will discover an accurate, antiracist narrative to share with children. In addition to practical tools that everyone can use to raise awareness of white privilege, you'll learn how to :
  • Explore the explanations for racial inequality we've learned from parents, communities and schools
  • Model racial equality
  • Be intentional about raising antiracist children
  • Practice effective allyship
  • Take action in our homes, schools & communities
This interactive session will include presentation and small group discussion throughout the webinar. While geared toward white parents, we welcome all parents interested in joining this conversation.

Your enrollment includes access to video recording, an audio version to listen to podcast style, and handouts.
