Tonight at 6:30! Speaker Series
Children are never too young to discuss race and racism, and ongoing dialogue is crucial to their learning and understanding of racial equity. Dr. Rosemarie Allen will teach parents, caregivers, educators, and community members the language necessary to have age-appropriate conversations about race. Attendees will leave with a better understanding of implicit bias and gain the language needed to begin and continue ongoing dialogues about race and racism with children.
This training will engage participants in discussions about key social justice issues that impact how we teach, serve, and interact with others. Participants will gain an understanding of concepts that pose as barriers to addressing racial equity, such as implicit bias and how it impacts students, communities, and schools; color-blind and culture-blind ideology; and White Space.
