Raising Anti-Racist White Children 

May 19, 2020

Begins June 10! Register Now! 

Please join an online, live interactive workshop for parents and educators offering information and guidance on how to prepare white children in our increasingly multiracial society. The workshop encourages the development of an anti-racist outlook in all children, and focuses on the particular experience of raising white children.

Did you know?

  • Among families with kindergarteners, white parents are 3 times less likely to discuss race than parents of color.
  • 75% of white parents never, or almost never talk about race.
  • First graders placed in cross-racial study groups changed their play habits in a positive way, while third graders placed in similar cross-racial study groups did not.
  • Researchers speculate there is a "developmental window" when positive crossracial habits are most readily learned.

Register Now!
