Join us for an interactive webinar on Sunday, April 23rd, 8 PM EST

Sunday, April 23rd, 8 PM EST Interactive Workshop/Webinar:

NOTE: Registration for this webinar will close one week prior on Sunday, April 16th.

We often avoid talking about race with our young children but, whether we like it or not, children notice similarities and differences between people. When we are silent, they are left to draw their own conclusions about what “different” means. Without coaching or support, their conclusions often reflect and reinforce biases. Fortunately – when we are intentional – we can impact the ways that our children see, categorize, and make meaning about race.

If you already use race conscious talk with young children on a regular basis, you may want to consider a small group or individual consultation (described below)…though we have found that this workshop may offer additional strategies to more experienced race conscious practitioners.

In this 1.5 hour-long workshop/webinar, you will:

  • Develop confidence to talk about race with young children.
  • Practice various strategies to proactively talk about race with young children.
  • Strengthen children’s ability to become a change-maker.

You may participate in the workshop/webinar as an individual, or you can organize a Race Conscious Gathering in your home and invite up to 6 people to participate as a team of parents/educators committed to racial justice.

Registration Fee for Individuals: $45

Registration Fees for hosting a Race Conscious Gathering in your home: Organizers of Race Conscious Gatherings will receive detailed information (regarding logistics and technology) with regard to how to successfully facilitate in your home.

Up to 6 individuals: $180

*Due to the structure/time frame of the workshop, Raising Race Conscious Children does not recommend hosting a Race Conscious Gathering for a group larger than 6 individuals as we don’t feel we can ensure its success—that said, if you feel you can ensure the success from a technology/audio point of view (large screen/speakers, etc) you may host a larger group “at your own risk.” We do ask that additional individuals pay an individual rate (as the funds from these webinars are crucial to the continuance of the blog). For larger groups, see our In-person/Virtual Raising Race Conscious Children workshop description.
