Talking to young children about racism, anti-racism and bias can be daunting, even for parents who have experience with these issues in other contexts. Feeling ill equipped to engage is common, but waiting until children are developmentally ready for adult discussions misses an important window, since the roots of racism and bias can start extremely early. Come learn about the impact on children and how to get started with teachable moments for children from preschool through middle school age. The event will be led by Meredith Moore from the group Kids for Racial Justice.
Light refreshments to be provided. For more questions and information please contact info@worldofwellesley.org
