Are young children ready to talk about race and racism and, if so, how can I have these conversations?

How can I talk about being white if I didn’t talk about it growing up?

In this workshop we will explore stories and questions young children bring as well as research and best practices that can support these conversations. This workshop is open to all and is designed for families and caregivers of white children.
