Raising Race Conscious Children! From the RRCC website: "We often avoid talking about race with our young children but, whether we like it or not, children notice similarities and differences between people. When we are silent, they are left to draw their own conclusions about what “different” means. Without coaching or support, their conclusions often reflect and reinforce biases. Fortunately – when we are intentional – we can impact the ways that our children see, categorize, and make meaning about race. " During this workshop, participants will: create common strategies for talking about race for all families practice strategies to proactively talk about race with children discuss ways to strengthen children's abilities to be change-makers address questions and concerns raised by attendees Butler Street Coop is subsidizing a large portion of the workshop fee and asking for a donation of $25 per participant.
