Racism can take on a lot of forms: a youth being harassed at school, a person not getting a job because of their name, someone dismissing a story or incident, ignoring cultural norms, obvious and subtle, even through seemingly innocent questions.
This is a topic that can come up for all families and can sometimes be hard to address – especially what to do for and say to the youth in your care. This topic, while sensitive and at times uncomfortable, remains important. Join us as we learn about addressing racism with the youth in your care, advocating on their behalf and what you can do to start the conversation in your home.
On Thursday, February 26, the Coalition will be hosting a training on this topic – Having Critical Conversations with Children and Youth about Racism. We hope you can join us and trainer Warren Scherer as we learn about how you can start the conversation in your home and how you can advocate on the behalf of children and youth you care for.
