I am delighted to be hosting this online workshop run by Britt Hawthorne and Tiffany Jewell, both Montessori educators and the best anti-bias/anti-racist educators you can find.
* How can we talk to our youngest children about race?
* Want to find out how you can be anti-racist in your family and get more language around it?
* Curious about the anti-bias education framework and how you can use it at home?
* Finding that you’ve diversified your feed, now what?
Anti-racist parenting acknowledges we live in a racist society and demands us to disrupt the racism we breathe so every child (and family) can reach their fullest potential. This workshop is perfect for parents and caregivers looking to begin the journey in becoming anti-racist parents.
We will learn activities that support each goal in the anti-bias education framework, strengthen our anti-racist language, and feel confident in responding to our children’s questions. This workshop is designed for socially conscious parents and caregivers of children 0-6 years of age.
This was a live online workshop. If you missed it, it’s still possible to purchase the recording here. And it will feel like you were there with us.
