Talking with Children and Youth About Race

Thursday and Friday, May 5th and 6th, 2022

How much do children really understand about race? How can you support a child’s developing cultural identity?

In this two-day workshop (May 5th and 6th) we will explore how young people in early childhood through their teen years are socialized to practice racism and privilege. The facilitators draw from their diverse experiences to engage parents, teachers, and concerned community members in this vital work for equity.

Participants will…

  • Learn how young people see and understand race
  • Discover ways to support healthy ethnic identity development in young people

Facilitators: Caprice D. Hollins, Psy.D. & Ilsa Govan, M.A.

Location: This event is virtual and the Zoom link will be emailed to participants.
