All are invited to “A Conversation with Parents on Race” on Sunday, July 31, at 11:30am in the Parlor. We hope for this to be the first of more conversations on race and racism, and feel that parents are in the unique position in these days of trying to answer questions raised by children and youth about racial violence and racial equity.
This will be an informal gathering, a safe space to share our experiences, fears, and hopes. The conversation will focus on how parents and grandparents can talk to kids about racism, but all voices are welcome. If you need childcare for age 5 and under, please register.
