Raising children to build a just world is a life-long process, as well as a difficult challenge for parents to navigate. Join us for a two-part series with expert educator Dr. Nabina Liebow, who will take us through the learning and practical steps necessary to raise anti-racist children and help us create a cohort of race conscious parents in our community.

Although we understand that life is unpredictable, we request that you commit to both parts of this workshop in order to honor the learning process and receive the full benefit of this workshop. Attendance will be capped in order to create an intimate cohort of parents. 

Part 1 (September 3, 8:00-9:30 PM): Discussing race and racism with your children is a vital part of antiracist and race conscious parenting. But some people might feel a little rusty on the basics! In the first part of the workshop, Dr. Liebow will give a "Crash Course in Racial Literacy" to familiarize us with important concepts in practicing race-conscious parenting. By the end of this session, participants will gain a deeper understanding of race conscious parenting, race, white supremacy, white privilege, and antiracism. 

Part 2 (Septemebr 10, 8:00-9:30 PM): In the second part of the workshop, parents will learn strategies for helping their child develop an antiracist consciousness and get a chance to role-play and practice talking about race with their kids.
