Talking to Kids About Race and Racism
Sunday, May 5, 4 PM to 6 PM
Interfaith Council for Peace and Justice
1414 Hill St, Ann Arbor, MI 48104

It can be hard enough to talk to adults about race, prejudice, and justice–how do you talk about it with young kids? That’s why former ICPJ Director Chuck Warpehoski teamed up with early childhood expert and decolonizing activist Nuola Akinde to put together a workshop to teach parents how.

Equal parts discussion and practice session, this workshop will empower adults with the skills they need to discuss race, racism and fairness with the children in their lives. Participants will also receive four follow up emails to check in about their practice and provide ongoing support.

Suggested donation $25, but all are welcome! Space is limited, so register today. Can’t make the workshop? Contact Nuola for booking another event at [email protected]
