Free Workshop: How to Talk to Your Child About Race w/Carol Swainson -- CANCELLED
This interactive workshop will provide participants with experiences, practice, resources, and tools to navigate conversations about race with their children. Participants will gain an understanding of the historical and psychological factors that make it difficult to engage in this critical discourse. Participants will also begin the process of planning for future education and practice on the topic of race.
